    Boot file sequence in a generic linux setup


    What is a generic or common sequence of files used during startup? Just prior to starting grub or lilo which gives you a choice of OS's if more than one is installed, then XXX which does yyy, then zzz which does aaa etc.... Also if you coud include the typical defualt file location.

    You don't need to go crazy with options just assume its a dual boot home PC using a gui.

    flw,
    Not sure how lilo or grub fit into it, but are you looking for something like this?

    Looked at it briefly, but seems to be what I am looking for.

    I was just looking for the first 5 or 10 files or so since should be the basis for troublshooting startup problems.
