As benno says, copy it to android-root/data/app/busybox and add PATH to your android-root/start script.
But question is how to get an Android console. The easiest way would be modify your android-root/start script.
After booting Android up, try [Fn] + [left/right cursor]. If you find "\u@\h:\w$", that's the Android console.
\u@\h:\w$ busybox | busybox more
\u@\h:\w$ busybox ash
There is a one issue. The keycodes are passed to the graphical screen too. Which means everytime you press [Enter] key, some activies are fired in the graphical screen. It is kind of annoying.
To avoid this issue, launch Android from ssh console of your PC.
If you are using Angstrom based Android, you can try this.

Please do not try on Poky based Android. I've been told by cortez that it doesn't work for his image.
