Most systems use a generic one size fits all disk driver in 11.4, so knowing
which CPU, motherboard chipset and video chip should be provided (output from
lspci and lsmod commands)

complete toolset, so you can use a familiar editor. I use mc as navigator,
editor and file manager in both text mode and while running X. Vi is included
in rescue mode and should be explained in your book.
