Sample text

If you were mirroring, we would suggest the former. If your CD-ROM were used constantly, then you would probably want to use the later suggestion. Whatever you do, make sure that the devices are configured correctly as master or slave. All of this discussion assumes that all the drives and CD-ROMs involved are all compatible technology. There are different kinds of IDE technology, and as discussed in Chapter 1, “Preparing for Installation: Chronicling Your Equipment,” some should not be mixed. For example, do not penalize a hard drive by having it share a controller with a very slow CD-ROM device.

This situation is usually the case if you have taken the opportunity to add or move drives around in the system. Check the master/slave jumpers on all the drives and devices. If the drives are all chained off of the same IDE controller, then one device should be configured as the master and the other device should be the slave. You will have to locate the documentation for the IDE device to find out how the jumpers are to be arranged, because these instructions vary for different devices. Another more interesting problem is dealing with a CD-ROM that will not load automatically after the installation.

Better yet, dedicate an entire drive to the swap space alone. Hard Disk Partitioning The hard disk is, of course, the primary medium for storing information. Hard disks grow in size every year, and as they get larger, using them in an efficient way becomes more difficult. The file system is the general term used to describe the logical structures and software routines used to control the access to the storage on a hard disk system. Different operating systems use different ways of organizing and controlling access to data on the hard disk, and this choice is independent of the specific hardware used.
