Change log:

* Updated rc.shutdown - removed sleep to improve shutdown speed.
 
rc2
* Updated busybox  -  1.18.5 new depmod applet and audit of required applets.
* Updated search.sh  - improved searching by title results and support for fat file-system.
* Updated provides.sh  - support for fat file-system.
* Updated tce-setup, tce-load, and loadpack.sh - alias for new depmod applet.

rc3
* Updated rebuildfstab and tc-config for AOE support.
* Updated tc-functions getpassword to support backspace during input.
* Updated tc-audit added "fetchmissing" to fetch missing dependencies.
* Updated tce-setup for loading tce directory on cdrom and installable via updates to tc-install & tc-grub4dos
* Updated multicore.iso to use cdrom tce directory together with specific boot lists for network, install, or grub4dos.
* Updated tce-setup, tce-load, and loadpack.sh to ensure busybox is not trumped by coreutils or util-linux-ng.

Note the following have also been updated:

Xprogs.tcz
wbar.tcz

And are needed when using microcore_3.8rc3.iso and X windows.
See; http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=10932.0 details.
