    Check out Inside the Linux boot process on the IBM developerWorks Linux zone. You'll also find other articles and tutorials there on booting and boot loaders

      thanks, i was reading that article yesterday and also this article
      http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-embdev.html

      I am getting the idea already. but there are still a lot of things which i don't understand:

      1. In the article above, when the bootloader, setup the parameter area, what parameters are being set and which structure are being used.?

      2. and when this parameter this parameters are being set, which part of the memory are they being loaded?

        This is kind of off-topic for this forum. I'd suggest you install the Linux kernel documentation package on your system and look at the information provided there. Also check out the online resources such as Linux Kernel 2.4 Internals, among others. You might also want to check out books at your local college library or through online or local booksellers.

            No problem. If something doesn't fit here we at least try to help you find a better resource. Good luck with your learning.
