The Linux boot process is the sequence of events occurring when a Linux operating system starts. This includes the BIOS or UEFI firmware, the bootloader, the kernel, and the init process.

Dual boot is installing two different operating systems on a single computer. In the context of Linux, this usually involves installing a Linux distribution alongside an existing Windows installation.

The root directory is the top-level directory in a Linux file system. It is represented by a forward slash (/) and contains all other files and directories in the system.

Files and directories are the basic building blocks of a Linux file system. Files are used to store data, while directories are used to organise and store files.

The init process is the first process that starts when a Linux operating system boots up. It is responsible for starting other processes and services required for the system to function correctly.

The installation process in Linux involves setting up the operating system on a computer or server. This includes selecting the appropriate Linux distribution, partitioning the hard drive, and configuring the system components.

The bin directory in Linux contains binary executable files used by the system and its users.

The Linux kernel is the core of the Linux operating system. It manages the system's resources and provides a platform for running applications and services.

Run levels in Linux are different operating modes that the system can be in. They control which services and processes are started up during the boot process.

The root user is a particular user account in Linux that has complete access to all system resources and files.

The exam objectives for the CompTIA Linux+ certification cover topics such as system architecture, Linux installation and package management, GNU and Unix commands, devices, Linux file systems, and security.
