I'm using the busybox binary in the SELF package of arm-2007-01-
21.iso (ELDK 4.1). I'm not sure about configuration of busybox.

busybox-arm_trg-1.3.0-1.arm.rpm as inside arm-2007-01-27.iso ELDK 4.1

I notice another thing:
  root:/flnand/www/cgi-bin> echo -e "hello\nworld"
  root:/flnand/www/cgi-bin> echo -e 'hello\nworld'
If I use double quotes, -e option doesn't work. If I use single 
quote, it works. Could it be a issure related to the shell?
