Article: Linux Boot Camp (part 1: SysV Init)

My latest article is up on Linux Planet: How Linux Boots: Linux Boot Camp (Part I: SysV Init)

It describes the boot sequence, from grub to kernel loading to init scripts to starting X. Part I covers the classic "SysV Init" model still used to some extent by every distro; part II will cover Upstart, the version that's gradually working its way into some of the newer Linux releases.
