Summary

In this rather technical hour, we covered the underlying structure that FreeBSD uses to get itself up and running from a cold start in which the only piece of running software is the BIOS. You learned how the hierarchy of partitioning levels in FreeBSD works, and saw how the sequence of boot blocks lead the system from one level to the next until the complete FreeBSD system is fully up and running.

You also saw how FreeBSD's resource configuration scripts work, as well as how to configure their operation. You saw how to enable and disable services that run out of the inetd super server and how to control the logging of system services using syslogd.
