          These programs help maintain a file system on a local disk
          for a private machine.

          Setup.disk partitions a disk and makes a new file system on
          the disk.  It then calls setup.9fat, update, and personalize
          to initialize the file system.

          Setup.9fat formats the named 9fat partition, installing
          /386/9load, /386/9pcdisk, and the named plan9.ini file.

          Update copies the current kernel to the disk and updates
          files on the local file system by copying them from the main
          file server (named by the environment variable $fileserver).
          The files it updates are specified by the mkfs(8) prototype
          file /sys/lib/sysconfig/proto/386proto.

          Personalize removes the contents of the /usr directory on
          the local disk and copies a minimal set of files for the
          user who runs the command.

          The boot scripts prepare various ways to bootstrap Plan 9.
          Bootfloppy creates a boot floppy containing 9load, a zeroed
          512-byte plan9.nvr, and the named file as plan9.ini.
          Bootplan9 sets the 9fat partition to be the active parti-
          tion, the one used at boot time.  Bootwin9x edits the files
          config.sys, msdos.sys, and autoexec.bat on the drive mounted
          by c: to provide Plan 9 as a boot menu option.  These system
          files are first backed up as config.p9, msdos.p9, and
          autoexec.p9.  Bootwinnt edits the Windows NT boot loader
          menu contained in the first FAT partition's boot.ini to pro-
          vide Plan 9 as an option.  It is first backed up as boot.p9.
          If backup files already exist, bootwin9x and bootwinnt do
