    I've come across 2 questions on the CD so far that I don't understand. I've checked the errata for the book and found one listed, bit not the other. Maybe someone can help me on this because I don't understand how the given answer can be correct.

    Scenario: User needs two partitions, one for WORK (file level security required) and one for PERSONAL (must be accessible from an XP Home comp). How do I format them?

    My answer: Both NTFS
    Their answer: NTFS for WORK, FAT32 for PERSONAL
    Am I missing something, or is this another error?

    Seems to me like its microsoft being microsoft if you know what I mean. The only thing I can think it xp home was normally shipped/installed as FAT32 simply because home user didn't need the extra security that NTFS offers for being part of a domain/workgroup. if that helps?

    Yeah, if the XP home install had to be part of a workgroup with PCs running older operating systems (e.g Windows 98 ) then FAT32 is the way to go.

    Does seem like a "Microsoft" kinda question.

    The XP home is the only other computer requiring access to the PERSONAL partition.

    That's what's got me stumped. The explantion simply says it "should be FAT32. This allows the files to be accessible from Windows XP Home"

    Thinking about it from another angle:
    Would using FAT32 stop people at her work accessing the PERSONAL partition?

    I'm beginning to think this question used to contain reference to 9x instead of XP Home.

    Yeah, if you guys can't figure it out it probably is. Think I'll chalk that one down to someone "upgrading" a question instead of doing a "clean install".

    Thanks for the input everyone.
