I think it's me who was a bit rude :( Sorry.

> I'm using the Gentoo linux distribution (www.gentoo.org) which uses
init-scripts to manage devices. '/etc/init.d/net.xxx cmd' means I'm calling the
init-script for network device xxx (e.g. eth0) to execute "cmd" which can be
"start", "stop", "restart"...

Yes, I understand this. But I needed more than that. Since I have no access to
your system, in these cases you need to dig deeper into those shell scripts.
You need to experiment with your system, find where exactly it tries to execute
/bin/busybox and emits this message:

start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/bin/busybox'

In the process you either will understand what the problem is, or will be able
to provide more meaningful bug report.
