Again, what is the problem.  What is your expected result and what is
your actual result?

It seems like your trying to get a console on the serial line.  You need
	*make sure you have support for console on serial line in the 			
	*create /dev/ttyS0
	*add something like:
	to your /etc/inittab.  (Look in the mailing list archives.  I had 	
this problem a little while ago and a working inittab was posted 	
	*look at ./docs/BusyBox.html
