This document written by Funtoo guys could be useful on configuring extra parts like the bootloader. They have examples on extlinux/syslinux and Grub2 - http://www.funtoo.org/wiki/ZFS_Install_Guide - [[User:Risthel|Risthel]] ([[User talk:Risthel|talk]]) 10:35, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

So, continuing the discussion from the ZFS article about merging, I think it is time. A lot of the duplicate information in this article is out of sync with the beginners guide.
 
 
 
* [[#Boot from the installation media]] can go into the Tips and tricks section.
 
 
 
* I think we could possibly add a "Boot from ZFS" section into the main ZFS article with the required information.

replace writehostid with zgenhostid?

Since a few versions zfs now comes with a tool to write a hostid to /etc/hostid. Should we recommend using it instead of the provided C code?
