BOOTPARAM TYPES

The ``bootparam'' class has the following types:
aarch
The application architecture.Expects one argument.Legal values are ``sparc'' or ``i386''.Usually used to substitute into other records.This can usually be derived from ``in hinfo'' records if not supplied,so it commonly is not given explicitly.Can still be used in $substitutions evenif derived from the ``in hinfo'' records.
boottype
The boot type.Expects one argument.Legal values are ``in'' and nothing else.
display
Used for i386/i86pc.
install
The server and path of the Solaris CD image.Often contains $substitutions from other records,particularly $server and $aarch.
install_config
Expects two arguments.The server and path of the directorycontaining the install rules script.Often contains $substitutions from other records,particularly $server.
karch
The kernel architecture.Expects one argument.Legal values include: ``i86pc'', ``sun4'', ``sun4c'', ``sun4m'', etc.
keyboard
Used for i386/i86pc.
mouse
Used for i386/i86pc.
root
Expects two arguments.The server and path of the root directory to mountas a diskless client while installing solaris on the native disk.Often contains $substitutions from other records,particularly $server, $aarch and $karch.
server
The name of the install server.Expects one argument.Used to parameterise other records.
term
The terminal type.Expects one argument.Legal values are terminal names from termcap,usually ``sun''.Specifying this makes install much faster.
 

THE * DEFAULT

The special host name ``*'' may be used to specify defaults.These may be over-riden by specific entries.The most recently see default of each type anme is remembered.This may be exploited,for example,to set different servers and gateways for different networks.

Substitutions are performed after the defaults are applied,so thatroot,for example,may contain $substitutions.It is usually sufficient to have a single ``karch'' record triggerthe entire bootparam entry in the output.
