        i.   Run updatedb
             (builds a list of data)

       ii.   Run locate <filename>
             (looks in the resulting data file)


     2) CD-related
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        i.   mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/hdc /cdrom

       ii.   umount /cdrom


     3) Floppy
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        i.  dd if=/thekernel of=/dev/hda


     4) Console operations
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        i.  appname &

				
     5) Read the boot log

Don't remember what you can infer.
