       These programs help maintain a file system on a local disk for  a  pri‐
       vate machine.

       Setup.disk  partitions  a disk and makes a new file system on the disk.
       It then calls setup.9fat, update, and  personalize  to  initialize  the
       file system.

       Setup.9fat  formats  the	 named	9fat partition, installing /386/9load,
       /386/9pcdisk, and the named plan9.ini file.

       Update copies the current kernel to the disk and updates files  on  the
       local  file  system by copying them from the main file server (named by
       the environment variable $fileserver).  The files it updates are speci‐
       fied by the mkfs(8) prototype file /sys/lib/sysconfig/proto/386proto.

       Personalize  removes  the  contents  of the /usr directory on the local
       disk and copies a minimal set of files for the user who runs  the  com‐

       The  boot scripts prepare various ways to bootstrap Plan 9.  Bootfloppy
       creates a boot floppy containing 9load, a  zeroed  512-byte  plan9.nvr,
       and  the named file as plan9.ini.  Bootplan9 sets the 9fat partition to
       be the active partition, the one used at boot  time.   Bootwin9x	 edits
       the  files config.sys, msdos.sys, and autoexec.bat on the drive mounted
       by c: to provide Plan 9 as a boot menu option.  These system files  are
       first  backed  up  as  config.p9, msdos.p9, and autoexec.p9.  Bootwinnt
       edits the Windows NT boot loader menu contained in the first FAT parti‐
       tion's  boot.ini to provide Plan 9 as an option.	 It is first backed up
       as boot.p9.  If backup files already exist, bootwin9x and bootwinnt  do

	      Mkfs(8) prototype files.
