    i assume the files it means are:

    NTLDR
    ntdetect.com
    boot.ini

    and, if present:

    bootsect.dos
    ntbootdd.sys

    which are used in the boot process.

    to see how they are used click here or here.

    Are you sure the question isn't asking about the file systems used in XP?

    There are far too many system files to remember all the details.

    --upgrading RAM--

    1. Buy compatible memory
    2. turn off pc
    3. open case and ESP yourself
    4. Inset new memory stick to memory slot
    5. Close case
    6. Boot up (uses system files above, exam dependent, knowing which would also help us!)
    7. Verify that it is installed (looking in the POST info or in the OS)

    Mario,

    If you do mean file sytem then XP should really use NTFS to get all the benefits it has natively, but can use FAT if you want to dual boot operating systems.

    See thread above for RAM install.
