       intro - introduction to system maintenance and operation commands

       This section contains information related to system operation and main-
       tenance.  In particular, commands used  to  create  new  file  systems,
       newfs,  mkfs,  and  verify  the  integrity  of  the file systems, fsck,
       icheck, dcheck, and ncheck are  described  here.   The  section  format
       should  be  consulted  when  formatting  disk packs.  The section crash
       should be consulted in understanding  how  to  interpret  system  crash
