The easiest way to install busybox on your rooted device is to install "BusyBox Installer" from the android market.

Or you can do it manually
  • Download the busybox (version 1.15.2)
  • Open a command shell and cd to the directory that contains the busybox binary
adb push busybox /data/local
adb shell
$ su
# mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
# mkdir /system/xbin
# cat /data/local/busybox > /system/xbin/busybox
# chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox
# busybox --install /system/xbin
# mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
# sync
# reboot
