I think I saw it on this forum... or by a google search... but to install busybox, you download it (again, I think I got the binary from this forum) and put it in a folder like /data/busybox (or on MoDaCo it's in /system/xbin) and then you run busybox --install (or something like that) and it creates all the symlinks.
In order to use the functionality, you have to put into your path the folder where busybox is installed (or at least the symlinks). I found it easier to just install MoDaCo's ROM since you get a lot of other cool things like WiFi tether, apps2sd, superuser whitelist, etc.
Please forgive my "or something like that"'s, but I don't have the exact link to reference... I found the answer (like I said, I think on this forum) just by searching.
