BOOT_ZAURUS(8)	   OpenBSD System Manager's Manual (Zaurus)	BOOT_ZAURUS(8)

     boot_zaurus - zaurus system bootstrapping procedures

   System starts
     When powered on, or if the system is rebooted via reboot(8) or
     shutdown(8), the processor begins executing code at physical address 0.
     The early startup code is preinstalled by the manufacturer, and will load
     a minimal UNIX-like operating system from internal flash memory (our
     primary bootstrap loader, for now).

   Boot process options
     On most systems, booting OpenBSD from the primary bootstrap loader will
     eventually load the OpenBSD-specific zaurus bootstrapping code.  This
     versatile program is described in a separate document, boot(8).

   Abnormal system termination
     In case of system crashes, the kernel will usually enter the kernel
     debugger, ddb(4), unless it is not present in the kernel, or it is
     disabled via the ddb.panic sysctl.	 Upon leaving ddb, or if ddb was not
     entered, the kernel will halt the system if it was still in device
     configuration phase, or attempt a dump to the configured dump device, if
     possible.	The crash dump will then be recovered by savecore(8) during
     the next multi-user boot cycle.  It is also possible to force other
     behaviours from ddb.

     /bsd		  default system kernel
     /bsd.rd		  standalone installation kernel, suitable for
			  disaster recovery
     /usr/mdec/zboot	  system bootstrap
     /usr/mdec/zbsdmod.o  kernel module for the primary bootstrap loader that
			  must be loaded before the system bootstrap
