 Linux System Startup

Linux Gazette talks about Linux startup.

"The geek word for starting up a computer is bootstrapping. The short version is booting or boot. The initial part of this process is performed by code stored in ROM. This is code that is general in nature rather than being specific to Linux. Its task is to load the Linux-specific loader and turn control over to it."
