Re: System Startup --> Stage1 bootloader2006-09-20T00:48:40Z in response to ishieldsthanks, i was reading that article yesterday and also this article
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?
Re: System Startup --> Stage1 bootloader2006-09-20T02:33:49Z in response to SystemAdminThis 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.
