F.3.2. Boot Loaders for Other Architectures

Once the kernel loads and the boot process continues, the process of bringing up the system is the same. The main difference between each architecture's boot process is in the application used to find and load the kernel.
For example, the IBM eServer pSeries architecture uses yaboot, and the IBM System z systems use the z/IPL boot loader. Configuration of alternative bootloaders is outside the scope of this document.
