46+<p>
47+ELILO, the EFI LInuxLOader, is the standard Linux bootloader for
48+<uri link="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extensible_Firmware_Interface">EFI</uri>
49+based systems. This includes all Itanium machines.

56+<p>
57+You can find the configuration file at <path>/etc/elilo.conf</path> and a
58+sample file in the typical docs dir <path>/usr/share/doc/elilo-&lt;ver&gt;/</path>.
59+Here is another sample configuration:
60+</p>
61+
62+<pre caption="/etc/elilo.conf example">
63+boot=/dev/sda1
64+delay=30
65+timeout=50
66+default=Gentoo
67+append="console=ttyS0,9600"
68+prompt

70+image=/vmlinuz
71+ label=Gentoo
72+ root=/dev/sda2

75+image=/vmlinuz.old
76+ label=Gentoo.old
77+ root=/dev/sda2
78+ read-only
79+</pre>
80+
81+<p>
82+The <c>boot</c> line tells elilo the location of the boot partition (in this
83+case, <path>/dev/sda1</path>). The <c>delay</c> line sets the number of 10th
84+of seconds before automatically booting the default when in non-interactive
85+mode. The <c>timeout</c> line is just like the delay line but for interactive
86+mode. The <c>default</c> line sets the default kernel entry (which is defined
87+below). The <c>append</c> line adds extra options to the kernel cmdline. The
88+<c>prompt</c> sets the default elilo behavior to interactive.
89+</p>
90+
91+<p>
92+The sections that start with <c>image</c> defines different bootable images.
93+Each image has a nice <c>label</c>, a <c>root</c> filesystem, and will only
94+mount the root filesystem <c>read-only</c>.
95+</p>
96+
97+<p>
98+When configuration is done, just run <c>elilo --efiboot</c>. The
99+<c>--efiboot</c> option adds a menu entry for Gentoo to the EFI Boot Manager.
