Remember In the old days when the hardest holiday gift was building a bike or piece of furniture?  I am sure I am leaving something out, but now it seems you have to know how to:

redboot
tftpboot
burn a boot rom
floppy boot bios updates
flash firmware updates
netxfer thin clients
pxeboot
netboot
bootcamp
aoe ata over ethernet
iscsi
etherboot
burn a boot cd
burn a boot usb stick
boot virtual machines
bootx
oompile a kernal to boot
solder or desolder a part to boot faster or better.

Or just find the power button to boot.
