BRAND.4TH(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  BRAND.4TH(8)

NAME
     brand.4th -- FreeBSD ASCII	art boot module

DESCRIPTION
     The file that goes	by the name of brand.4th is a set of commands designed
     to	draw the ASCII art BSD brand above the boot loader menu.  The commands
     of	brand.4th by themselves	are not	enough for most	uses.  Please refer to
     the examples below	for the	most common situations,	and to loader(8) for
     additional	commands.

     Before using any of the commands provided in brand.4th, it	must be	in-
     cluded through the	command:

	   include brand.4th

     This line is present in the default /boot/menu.rc file, so	it is not
     needed (and should	not be re-issued) in a normal setup.

     The commands provided by it are:

	   draw-brand		  Draws	the BSD	brand.

				  The brand that is drawn is configured	by
				  setting the loader_brand variable in
				  loader.conf(5) to one	of "fbsd" (the de-
				  fault) or "none".

				  The position of the logo can be configured
				  by setting the loader_brand_x	and
				  loader_brand_y variables in loader.conf(5).
				  The default values are 2 (x) and 1 (y).

     The environment variables that effect its behavior	are:

	   loader_brand
		     Selects the desired brand in the beastie boot menu. Pos-
		     sible values are: "fbsd" (default)	or "none".

	   loader_brand_x
		     Sets the desired column position of the brand. Default is
		     2.

	   loader_brand_y
		     Sets the desired row position of the brand. Default is 1.
