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

NAME
     fastboot, fasthalt	-- reboot/halt the system without checking the disks

SYNOPSIS
     fastboot [boot-options]
     fasthalt [halt-options]

DESCRIPTION
     fastboot and fasthalt are shell scripts which reboot or halt the system,
     and when next started, the	system will skip the normal the	file systems
     checks.  This is done by creating a file /fastboot, then invoking the
     reboot(8) program.	 The system startup script, /etc/rc, looks for this
     file and, if present, skips the normal invocation of fsck(8).

SEE ALSO
     halt(8), rc(8), reboot(8)

HISTORY
     The fastboot command appeared in 4.2BSD.

BSD				 June 5, 1993				   BSD
