Lion's chapter 6, has some stuff and exact but might not be what you are
remembering,   Chapter 13 of the BSD book is 'system startup' and
more general than the Lions description.   The other place I would suggest
looking is the three DDJ articles Bill and Lynn Jolitz wrote; although he
might have talked about the 386 specifics, not the vaxen/11.
