I was thinking you wanted an additional busybox-bf_0.48pre-1_i386.deb that had
just the set of apps that are contained in the current boot-floppies package.
The binary in busybox_0.48pre-1_i386.deb has _everything_ turned on and is
about 260k -- probably not what you want...

Since I'm assuming you want a package with a very select group of apps
