More homework questions? I see you've been warned a bunch of times not to expect answers to homework problems here. You're very persistent, if nothing else...

But I'll bite anyway. If by loading process, you mean boot process, then you might want to google for "grub". If not, you want to google "linux init".

As for the second one, if you just google those words you'll find a good answer.
