[\fI\,options\/\fR]
.SH DESCRIPTION
palo version 2.00
.TP
\-?, \fB\-\-help\fR
Print this information
.HP
\fB\-c\fR, \fB\-\-commandline\fR=\fI\,default\/\fR kernel command line
.IP
Maximum 1023 characters.
.HP
\fB\-k\fR, \fB\-\-recoverykernel\fR=\fI\,path\/\fR to recovery kernel (perhaps \fI\,/boot/vmlinux\/\fP)
.HP
\fB\-b\fR, \fB\-\-bootloader\fR=\fI\,path\/\fR to boot loader (usually \fI\,/usr/share/palo/iplboot\/\fP)
.HP
\fB\-r\fR, \fB\-\-ramdisk\fR=\fI\,path\/\fR to initial ramdisk image
.HP
\fB\-I\fR, \fB\-\-init\-partitioned\fR=\fI\,partitioned\/\fR device or file
.IP
Initialize a pre\-partitioned device, usually a hard disk.
The partition table is not modified. Requires only \fB\-c\fR and \fB\-b\fR
though \fB\-k\fR is customary and prudent.
.HP
\fB\-U\fR, \fB\-\-update\-partitioned\fR=\fI\,partitioned\/\fR device or file
.IP
Update a pre\-partitioned device, usually a hard disk.
The partition table is not modified. Usually used to
modify the default kernel command line (\fB\-c\fR).
.HP
\fB\-s\fR, \fB\-\-init\-tape\fR=\fI\,file\/\fR
.IP
Initialize an unpartitioned file which can be copied to
tape, disk, or used as a bootp image. Requires \fB\-c\fR, \fB\-b\fR, \fB\-k\fR.
.HP
\fB\-C\fR, \fB\-\-init\-cdrom\fR=\fI\,iso\-image\-file\/\fR
.IP
Convert an ISO image already containing a kernel, boot loader,
and optionally a ramdisk, into a PA\-RISC bootable image.
Requires \fB\-c\fR, \fB\-b\fR, \fB\-k\fR, and optionally \fB\-r\fR. The files named on
the palo command line must have EXACTLY the same contents as
those already in the ISO image.
.HP
\fB\-f\fR, \fB\-\-configfile\fR=\fI\,path\/\fR to config file
.IP
Each line in the named configuration file is added
as a separate argument to the beginning of the palo
command line arguments (thus command\-line options
override config file options).
.IP
Short or long options can be used with long options
peferred for readability in the configuration file.
WARNING: No quotations or other shell syntax is understood,
so use
.IP
\fB\-\-commandline\fR=\fI\,a\/\fR b c
.TP
not
\fB\-\-commandline=\fR'a b c'.
.TP
The short\-option config file form of the above is:
\fB\-c\fR
a b c
.IP
Blank lines and lines beginning with # are ignored.
Whitespace at the beginning and ends of lines is discarded.
.TP
When \fB\-f\fR is not specified, palo tries \fI\,/etc/palo.conf\/\fP.
Use
.IP
\fB\-\-configfile=\fR/dev/null to avoid configuration files or
warnings when \fI\,/etc/palo.conf\/\fP is missing.
.HP
\fB\-v\fR, \fB\-\-verbose\fR
.IP
Provide more verbose information when running palo
.HP
\fB\-e\fR, \fB\-\-format\-as\fR=\fI\,type\/\fR
.IP
This is only for partitioned media. Format the palo
partition as an ext2 (type == 2) or ext3 (type == 3)
partition. With this option, you cannot specify any
parameters, kernels or ramdisks to be loaded into
the palo partition
.PP
\&'palo' with no arguments whatsoever is equivalent to 'palo \fB\-f\fR \fI\,/etc/palo\/\fP.conf'.
.PP
When more than one of \fB\-I\fR, \fB\-U\fR, \fB\-s\fR and \fB\-C\fR are used, only the
last one is effective.
