92>Although there are other possible configurations, RedBoot is usually
93run from the target platform&#8217;s flash boot sector or boot ROM, and is
94designed to run when your system is initially powered on. The method used
95to install the RedBoot image into non-volatile storage varies from platform
96to platform. In general, it requires that the image be programmed into flash
97in situ or programmed into the flash or ROM using a device programmer. In
98some cases this will be done at manufacturing time; the platform being delivered
99with RedBoot already in place. In other cases, you will have to program RedBoot
100into the appropriate device(s) yourself. Installing to flash in situ may require
101special cabling or interface devices and software provided by the board manufacturer.
102The details of this installation process for a given platform will be found
103in Installation and Testing. Once installed, user-specific configuration options
104may be applied, using the <B
105CLASS="COMMAND"
106>fconfig</B
107> command,
108providing that persistent data storage in flash is present in the relevant
109RedBoot version. See <A
