INTRO(8)                  BSD System Manager's Manual                 INTRO(8)

     intro -- introduction to system maintenance procedures and commands

     This section contains information related to system operation and mainte-

     It describes commands used to create new file systems (newfs(8)), verify
     the integrity of the file systems (fsck(8)), control disk usage
     (edquota(8)), maintain system backups (dump(8)), and recover files when
     disks die an untimely death (restore(8)).  The format(8) manual for the
     specific architecture the system is running on should be consulted when
     formatting disks and tapes.  Network related services like inetd(8) and
     ftpd(8) are also described.

     A number of pages in this section describe general system management top-
     ics. For example, the diskless(8) page describes how to boot a system
     over a network, and the compat_linux(8) page describes how to run Linux
     binaries on NetBSD architectures that support it.

     The intro section manual page appeared in 4.2BSD.
