Bootstrap?

If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

Bootstrap?

Postby denise » 2004-05-25 06:51

I was reading the article on the main page about Debian From Scratch and one thing I don't know is: Bootstrapping

Can somebody tell me what bootstrapping is?

Thanks
denise

a computer. Normally abbreviated to "boot".
