based on informations from you, I would certainly change


line to something like


(i.e. using only one sysinit line in inittab) and created

	exec /etc/init.d/rcS

or created an S00myuiprogram link to /bin/my_UI_program.

if you want to continue with rcS while running your program,
just fork and exit in my_UI_program. rcS will continue while
you run my_UI_program.
