The ubuntu 10.10 boot or startup sequence
I am attempting to learn linux and trying to understand the boot process of ubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I am unable to locate any appropriate documentation. Everything I can find seem to relate to some other distro or version. Files and directories are not where they are supposed to be or nonexistent. Ubuntu 10.10 from what I can see has transitioned from what has been described as the SysV init system of scripts to something called Upstart. Any documentation I can find for Upstart again points to nonexistent files and directories. I can only guess that Ubuntu has modified Upstart to its own needs. All this leaves me in the dark.
Can someone please assist me in locating specific documentation. I have searched the Ubuntu forums and the web to no avail.
Thank you in advance for your assistance
