I sugest you create a MFS image by untaring the etc.tgz distribution set
and only the ./rescue directory from base.tgz. Then hardlink rescue/init
to sbin/init and rescue/sh to bin/sh inside your MFS image. Run
"./MAKEDEV all" in the dev directory of your MFS image. This should give
you a minimal but complete MFS image.
