how to copy over busybox config file? (completelinuxinstaller)

Hello everyone.

I have been wanting to get to grips with linux for a while now and decided linux decided to try completelinuxinstaller as i was having some problems with linux deploy.
i set up everything as the app asked. Downloaded .img files, extract, rename file and launch.. but in the android terminal i get a error which said:

chroot: can't execute '/root/': Permission denied

After days of searching and trying minor fixes i got no where until i found a list of instructions on how to fix this error.

(This error is becoming common on Samsung devices running android version 4.4.2, and can be expected to happen with some other devices, or newer versions of android. Although I haven't yet found the exact cause of the error, an effective workaround has been found:
The error seems to be coming from something in the busybox executable installed by the Complete Linux Installer app; many have reported that using other versions of busybox removed this problem, and the following version (free download on Google Play) has been confirmed to work: BusyBox
After using that app to install an updated busybox binary, simply copy the new binary over the existing busybox binary at /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/busybox
Finally, in a rooted terminal window, type chmod 0755 /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/busybox (see the more detailed instructions in the How do I install the most up-to-date version of on my device? section of this FAQ)
Now you should be able to start linux using your Complete Linux Installer app on your device.)

But the problem is no matter what explorer i use i am not able to find the busybox config file. Where they said it would be doesnt exist. Even if i go to android/data its not there. Just the .com for all other apps. do you know where the busybox might be ?. On the busybox installer it says it is in /system/xbin but again i cant find it on my device.

And if i may chew your ear off for one more moment. How can i change the .config file ?

Thank you for your time
