boot parameter data base
The bootparams file contains a list of client entries that
diskless clients use for booting.
Corresponding NIS map
containing pathnames of files clients need during rebooting.
For each diskless client,
the entry contains the following information:
name of client
list of keys, server names and pathnames
The first field contains the name of the diskless client.
The subsequent field is a list of keys,
names of servers, and pathnames.
Fields are delineated with TAB characters.
If the client entry specifies a ``+'' (plus)
and the Network Information Service (NIS)
is installed and running,
the NIS map bootparams
on the NIS server will be used
instead of /etc/bootparams.
This is an example of the bootparams file.
