I'dd like to know what the following files in the directory /boot are about.
Can anyone give me a clue or point me to some documentation?
probably the lilo manpage? YES! ;-)
man lilo ;-)
no clue ;-(
On bootup, the disk is only known as a series of blocks. Map contains
the serie of raw data blocks that from the kernel (all kernels in
lilo.conf) that is *just* to be loaded to the memory. A sort of "File
Allocation Table" for the bootfiles before there is a known file system
(the bootsector stuff points to it's location and size). Main reason why
we need to run "lilo" after installing / changing a new kernel, since
the position on the disk will varie.
Thanks in advance,
