I went and downloaded a newer version of busybox, rebuilt it from 
source, and installed it in my initrd. I also bit-the-bullet and got rid 
of nash from that image. Seems to be behaving a little better. Now I get 
as far as mountint the iso, and the pivot_root command seems to be 
screwing up on me. My last line in my linuxrc file is msh, so that I can 
have some interactivity.

mount shows:

/dev/hda2 on /dos type vfat (rw,noatime, )
/dev/loop0 on /sysroot type iso9660 (ro)
/proc on /sysroot/proc type proc (rw,nodiratime)

when I go:
busybox pivot_root /sysroot /sysroot/initrd

I get:

pivot_root: pivot_root: invalid argument

but I can at least SEE the image
