Boot Commands

You can use the boot command with any one of the following options:


Boots from a network interface.


Boots from a local CD-ROM drive.


Boots from a local hard disk.

In addition, you can specify the name of the kernel to boot by including its relative path after the device specifier. Or, you can pass the –a option on the command line to force the operator to enter the path to the kernel on the boot device.
