Appendix C. Managing the Boot Process
In this appendix, you'll learn more about how to
boot a Linux system; in particular, you'll learn
more about configuring your computer system to boot any of several
operating systems. The appendix focuses on
GNU GRUB, the Grand
Unified Bootloader, the most popular utility for booting Linux
systems. Most users won't need to use the
information in this appendix. But, this information can help you
troubleshoot and resolve boot-related problems.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Core can be booted using
bootloaders other than GRUB, such as LILO.
Occasionally, LILO is able to boot a system that
can't be booted using GRUB. To learn more about
LILO, see the related section of
the Red Hat Linux 9 Reference
Guide, available at http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/ref-guide/s1-grub-lilo.html.
