1) A floppy disc is actually a piece of Mylar similar that is used for overhead transparencies
2) A 3 1/2 inch high density floppy disc has 224 entries in the root directory
3) Subdirectories can have as many entries as disk space allows
4) You may share IRQs with ISA devices on the ISA bus
5) THe number of memory addresses is partly limited
6) Hard copy is a term associated with a printer
7) Newer motherboards typically do not provide a connection for a floppy drive
Most SRAM now inside the processor housing
9) WHen examining memory measured in nanoseconds, the larger the number, the faster the memory
10) CISC CPUs are typically faster than RISC CPUs
11) One port fails on a non critial machine. You shold replace the motherboard
12) In windows 9x, a compressed drive is not a drive at all, its a file
13) Hardware disk cache is faster thank a software cache
14) You should verify that your recovery plans works by practicing it before disaster occurs
Thanks for your time
How will you learn if I tell you the answers? But here they are:
1. False – it’s a magnetic surface
2. True – yes, 224 root directories possible
3. False – Windows has a limit on directories and subdirectories- 255 deep maximum.
4. False – ISA are memory address specific-no sharing.
5. True – only sixteen IRQ but with port steering and USB managing them, it can appear to be more than sixteen.
6. True – hard copy/paper copy
7. False – Yes they do in case you want to use them.
8. False – SRAM is on cards, HD and hardware -too slow for processor.
9. False – smaller is always faster
10. False – less instructions to prevent slow down of processing time.
11. False – Just use another port if available
12. True – A compressed drive would not function-only a big file.
13. True – way faster!
14. True – of course!
Let me know how I did on your homework.
