8. The usual boot sequence (e.g. invocation of /sbin/init") is performed on the normal root file system."
Specifies the file to load as the contents of /dev/initrd"." "For "LOADLIN this is a command line option. "For "LILO"youhavetousethiscommandinthe LILO" configuration file "/etc/lilo.config"." The filename specified with this option will typically be a gzipped file-system image.
This boot time option disables the two phase boot-up operation. The kernel performs the usual boot sequence as if /dev/initrd was not initialized. With this option, any contents of /dev/initrd loaded into memory by the boot loader contents are preserved. This option permits the contents of /dev/initrd to be any data and need not be limited to a file system image. However, device /dev/initrd is read-only and can be read only one time after system startup.
Specifies the device to be used as the normal root file system. "For "LOADLIN this is a command line option. "For "LILO"thisisaboottimeoptionor can be used as an option line in the LILO" configuration file "/etc/lilo.config"." The device specified by the this option must be a mountable device having a suitable root file-system.
