NAME
     mdsetimage	-- set kernel RAM disk image

SYNOPSIS
     mdsetimage	[-svx] [-b bfdname] [-I	image_symbol] [-S size_symbol] kernel
		image

DESCRIPTION
     The mdsetimage command copies the disk image specified by image into the
     memory disk storage area in kernel.  The file system present in image
     will typically be used by the kernel as the root file system.

     To	recognize kernel executable format, the	-b flag	specifies BFD name of
     kernel.

     The -I and	-S flags specify the symbol names of image and size of memory
     disk drivers respectively.

     If	the -s flags is	given, mdsetimage will write back the actual disk im-
     age size back into	kernel.

     If	the -v flag is given, mdsetimage will print out	status information as
     it	is copying the image.

     If	the -x flag is given, mdsetimage will extract the disk image from
     kernel into the file image.  This is the opposite of the default behav-
     ior.
