If you have a Raspberry Pi then there is a document in $.Documents.Images.ArtWorks called 'BootHow' that shows a graphical view of the !Boot directory with some notes about what does what.

User Included Picture

This was an attempt to provide a comparable document to that produced by RISC OS Ltd for the (rather more complex) !Boot directory in RISC OS Select.

One of the example files included with the !Cat programme is the data file ('BootHow') that was used to produce this explanatory diagram ('BootHow'). It is a listing of the contents of the !Boot directory in the standard RISC OS 5.20 HardDisc4 disc image, with appropriate formatting tags to highlight and explain the functions of some parts of the boot structure.

If you download !Cat version 0.22 (from either !Store or !PackMan) then this example file is included allowing a 'Draw' file to be created showing an annotated '!Boot' directory.
