    The Config.sys file contains the line LASTDRIVE=F.
    The system uses a CD ROM, one primary partition, and three logical DOS drives. A loaded CD ROM disk does what?

    A) Install a program

    B) Become the G: drive

    C) Become the F: drive

    D) Nothing at all.

    Answer tommorow :thumbleft

    [HIDE]A for me, as the CD-ROM would take the next letter after the system drive, then the logical drives would get letters after. You would have problems with the 3rd logical drive in this instance.[/HIDE]

    was the question leaning towards the cd in the cd-rom or the actual cd rom?

    It is testing you on the basis of wether the CD ROM is configured. Because it isn't the loaded CD doesn't do anything. Hope that helps

    Not sure here, the lastdrive command specifies the last drive letter that can be used in DOS. making that F would mean that is the last reserved drive letter. Each reserved drive letter takes up memory and hence to keep as much available memory as possible you would keep the lastdrive value as low as you can.

    In practice CD ROM drives usually get assigned D:

    That is not an available answer :blink

    So, I will go with B, it will be assigned G

    I think it is a trick question!

    Edit to remove the hide tags:

    Okay sorry, now I scrolled down and see Boyce has answered and it was indeed a trick question.

    Hmmm where does it state that the CD ROM was not configured. The question points out that the system uses the CD ROM. How so, if it's not configured :blink
