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

NAME
     intro - introduction to system maintenance procedures and commands

DESCRIPTION
     This section contains information related to system operation and
     maintenance.

     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)).  Network related services like
     inetd(8) and ftpd(8) are also described.

     A number of pages in this section describe general system management
     topics. 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.

HISTORY
     The intro section manual page appeared in 4.2BSD.

FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE        December 14, 2010       FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE
