Tuning kernel parameters

Is there a way to tune the kernel parameters at the booting time.
I want for the list of parameters that are displayed by 'sysctl -A'

"Is there a way to tune the kernel parameters at the booting time."

Yes. You can place your changes in /etc/sysctl.conf

Another way to do it is to use /etc/rc.local. /etc/rc.local is the last script run during boot. You could place sysctl commands in /etc/rc.local

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
