ROOT(3)                                                   ROOT(3)

     NAME
          root - the root file system

     SYNOPSIS
          /
          /boot
          /dev
          /env
          /net
          /net.alt
          /proc
          /root
          /srv

     DESCRIPTION
          The syntax `#/' is illegal, so this device can only be
          accessed directly by the kernel.

          This device is set up by the kernel to be the root of the
          name space.  The names in the one-level tree are mostly just
          place-holders, to allow a place to bind(2) to.  The excep-
          tion is /boot, which contains /boot/boot and any files
          /boot/boot might need.  The kernel does an exec(2) of
          /boot/boot when initializing.
