FASTBOOT(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		   FASTBOOT(8)

NAME
     fastboot, fasthalt — reboot/halt the system without checking the disks

SYNOPSIS
     fastboot [boot-options]
     fasthalt [halt-options]

DESCRIPTION
     Fastboot and fasthalt are shell scripts which reboot and halt the system
     without checking the file systems.	 This is done by creating a file
     /fastboot, then invoking the reboot program.  The system startup script,
     /etc/rc, looks for this file and, if present, skips the normal invocation
     of fsck(8).

SEE ALSO
     halt(8), reboot(8), rc(8)

HISTORY
     The fastboot command appeared in 4.2BSD.

4.2 Berkeley Distribution	 June 5, 1993	     4.2 Berkeley Distribution
