brings up the safe mode boot screen
Basic to Dynamic, will data loss occur?

Interrupt Request Quotent, Memory Range and Input/Output Range all must be what for hardware if you are setting it up yourself. What if you are not setting it up for yourself, but windows has.
free of conflicts and not the same as any other hardware. If windows has set it up, these settings can be shared (IRQ sharing for example)

True or False. The folder options can also be changed from the Control Panel.
Correct. It is called folder options in the control panel.
IRQ stands for what?
Interrupt Request Quotient

install must have used the correct switch during WINNT installation. Name that switch. recovery console is better
Basic Disks are composed of what 2 elements?
Partitions or Logical Drives
Roaming profiles are helpful to a newtowrk administror why?
going to different machines and still have your mapped drives, etc..
What are the three options for Driver signatures?
Ignore- installa all files, regardless of signature

BLOCK- Prevent installation of unsigned files
In the Advanced section of My Computer Properties, you can select how long the list of operating systems will remain up. Where is this time information also located?

In the Boot.ini, under [operating systems] how many desciptive lines are there?
One for each parition or operating system
Parody or Parity
How can you tell what user is logged into a computer
Can a basic disk with Windows 2000 use striping or spanning?
No... must be upgraded to a dynamic disk.
Give an example of an ARC pathname
What raid level is a mirrored volume?
Level 1
Filter Keys
ignores breif or repateed keystrokes
Striped volumes without parity are what raid level
0. They are not fault tolerant
What does ARC stand for
Advanced RISC Computing
What are the two tasks you can perform from the add/remove hardware wizard?
add/troubleshoot a device
uninstall/unplug a device
What are sticky Keys?
One finger to hit two buttons
What is a spanned volume?
2-32 hard drives, bridged across
Describe the differences between USERS and GROUPS and USERS and PASSWORDS.
double check this one... USERS AND PASSWORDS are for local machine only I think.
Useable space on mirrored sets and stri[ped and spanned sets. Exlpain them
Refer to book
Where can you set up Multi-Lingual options such as date, language, currency, etc?
Describe a Striped Set with Parity
Raid level 5
3-32 disks
Fault Tolerant
What does RISC stand for
Redudec Instruction Set Computing
What is a simple volume?
1 space on 1 harddrive
What is the ARC Path?
They point to the computers boot partition
Why does a striped set with parity need at least three hard drives?
to write parity information, so if one disk is lost it can be rebuilt
How does a spanned volume work? How is information stored? is it striped for example?
Data is written to first disk first, then when full moves to next hard drive. There is no fault tolerance.
What is the pourpose of uninstall/unplug a device? where is this location?
things like hot swap drives,
located in the add new hardware wizard
Describe usable space with spanned, striped and mirrored sets?
See book
After converting to a dynamic disk, can you go back to a basic disk?
No. The information would need to be moved somwehere else. You cant go back
Does the extended partition get a drive letter>
NO, you name the logical drives once you have created the primary partition
Adding hardware- name three ways
#1) My computer, ribght click, properties, hardware tab.

#2)Start >> Settigns >> Control Panel >> ADD REMOVE HARDWARE

#3) Start settigns control panel, right click on SYSTEM and then Device Manager

#4) My netowrk places >> properties >> Local area connection >>properties, can configure NIC card from here.

What is a simple way to add hardware with the GUI?
Hint: establish a baseline with the performance monitor when computer is first built, then you can go back and check if computer have problems might what be wrong... is the proccessor getting hit? memory? Do a baseline on a couple diff comps in the company and if problems arise.
TEST QUESTION- uninstall/unplug a device is located where?
add/remove hardware wizard.
Windows 2000 has the ability to have 2 devices share the same IRQ, memory address and I/O ranges

2 hard drives with mirrored data, fault tolerant, Raid Level 1
What is a spanned volume with a dynamic disk?
2 hard drives represent one space, a spanned volume.
TEST: If you specify 100 megs on a MIRRORED volume, how much space will be taken from each drive? How much will the drive letter reflect?
100 each drive (200 total)_, but represents 100 megs in explorer.
