Dann talks about the linux boot process

Linux Boot Process - Part I SystemV vs BSD Style Scripts In part one of the Linux Boot Series we take a top level look at the Linux boot process and discuss some of the differences between SystemV based systems and BSD style systems.
I focus on RedHat, Slackware, Ubuntu (Debian) and Arch Linux. Below are some resources for further information.
Redhat - RHL 9 boot - shutdown process
Slackware Boot Process
Debian Boot Process
Basic overview of SystemV vs BSD Systems
IBM developer works book - Linux Boot Process
Gentoo Handbook for x86
- It's hard to specify one chapter because Gentoo's documentation is top notch and very informative. Review the installation and initscripts chapters in particular.
