alfred hitch:

hi! I guess what you want to know more is the initialization for linux kernel.
I know a guy who wirtes a perfect text named "i386 linux boot howto", you can 
find out this text on
also, I sugest you read the linux boot protocol, you can find this text in 
linux kenrel source code. maybe the name is boot.txt.

good luck;-)
