sh: can't access tty, job control turned off

I have created my own stripped down version of Linux using Busybox 0.60.5 and uClibc 0.9.19. I made a ram disk and it works great (albeit in terminal only) except i get an error that says "sh: can't access tty, job control turned off". This error doesn't come up on start up, but when I'm working with the system after doing simple things like dmesg. I have learned that this is probably related to BusyBox, bu I haven't found a solution.
Any ideas? I'm a newbie, so please give me all of the steps!

MMLinux - " no job control in this shell" problem

Hi I am trying to take a tiny bite of redhat 8 distro and make a mutant called MMLinux aimed at mp3 and video freaks evrything is fine except that i get an 'no job control in this shell' or somethng like that please help me with this. once i get this problem done, i can open ,more than 1 ttys and can keep a mixer open. I am trying to make it as simple and user freindly as possible. It has come to around 18 MB I am using Kdrive for Xserver instead of the usual X server. You can find about it in RULE (Run Updaed Linux Everywhere) 's web site. Mplayer for the mp3 playing ,vedio, ogg vorbis etc., etc., cdp for playing audio cds. My root file system is a heavily modified initrd of the RH8 package
