Loading the operating system
The first step in starting the system is to load
the operating system from the computer's hard disk.
When the system is loaded, it displays
information about the system configuration
and verifies that the root filesystem
(that is, all files and directories)
is in order and not corrupted.
If a filesystem is uncorrupted and in good order,
it is called ``clean''.
If the root filesystem is clean, you can choose the mode of operation.
If not, the system requires you to clean your filesystems first.
Turn on power to the computer and hard disk.
The computer loads the UNIX system bootstrap
program and displays this message:
Press the <Enter> key. The system loads the operating system
using the default bootstring as described in
``Changing the startup process''.
