Startup Messages

A booting FreeBSD system displays messages indicating the hardware attached to the system, the operating system version, and the status of various programs and services as they start. These messages are important when you first install your system or when you do troubleshooting. The boot messages always start off the same way, with a statement listing the copyrights for the FreeBSD Project and the Regents of the University of California:
