Of course, lilo or grub must load kernel into memory... But after that the boot process goes on and messages are registered into /var/log/messages and displayed on the video (if verbose is activated...).
I need to know the boot sequence or the files that are involved into the process (also if they are not ordered in sequence).
I must explain this strange request... I am seeking for the keyboards maps that are loaded during the boot and in particular the iso 8859-1!
