At the end of the installation procedure,
you made a complete backup of your system.
If you have not already backed up your system, do it now
using the instructions in
``Running unscheduled filesystem backups''.
Verify that you can read from this backup after booting from
the emergency boot floppy disk set.
Unless you have a second floppy or LS-120 drive,
you can only read from tape backups when you boot from
the floppy/LS-120 drive
with your boot and root floppy disks.
Make sure that the root floppy disk is in the drive.
List the contents of the backup:
cpio -itvcB -I /dev/rct0
You must be able to access your backup tape
volumes when you boot from the emergency boot floppy disk set.
If you cannot, follow the steps in the next section,
``Booting from the hard disk''.
Once you are satisfied that you can read backups after booting
from your emergency boot floppy disk set, reboot the system from the
hard disk by entering /etc/haltsys at the prompt.
When you see the message to reboot, remove the floppy disk from
the drive and press <Enter>.
Boot: prompt, press <Enter> to boot from the hard drive.
For information on using your emergency boot floppy disk set to access and
restore a corrupted root filesystem, see
``Restoring a corrupted root filesystem''.
