Subject: /etc/bootparams question

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out the various options that can be used for the
boottype=: parameter when setting up /etc/bootparams - I believe
boottype=:in is used to install the operating system, but I only want to
boot from it.  I've found that you can use 'di' 'os' & 'st' but I can't seem
to find an explanation as to what they do - I would guess that boottype=:os
runs a boot only, but it is a only a guess.

Can anybody tell me for sure??

TIA for any replies, much appreciated as always.
