Tell me If I am understanding this correctly, when I startup my
machine, the bios loads whatever is at the first part of the
harddrive. In my case, that is lilo(?) I have lilo configured to boot
minix. Ok so I type in minix, I assume at this point that lilo loads
the 'minix bootloader'? At this point the loader decides to load the
kernel? I have compiled a new kernel, 2.0.0r1, I assume that the
bootloader loads this kernel.
I have a question though, lets say I recompile the bootloader, does the
makefile place the bootloader in the correct place for a boot program,
let's say lilo(since I am using lilo)?
I have read the book but I am very new on the implementation of minix.
Whole different world.
