Can anyone tell me what data structures are found in the system area of a formatted floppy disk?
Why do you ask? What do you mean by data structures in system area? Do you mean boot sector? Formatted in which OS? That sounds like a pretty deep hardware level question! Not that I can answer... Probably out of my range, but certainly made me curious...

There was 2 questions that it asked. What type of filing syatem does windows 2000 use for floppy disks? That one I know and the second one just asks what data structures are found in the system area of a formatted floppy disk?
Thats all that it asks.
What's asking the question? I know the first one is fat, that's really the most efficient for a floppy under any OS. But the second one is a wierd question to me. I might just say the boot sector or master boot record and leave it at that. Win2k and Win9x format floppies differently, though, Win2k always making a floppy bootable ("active" is a more accurate term), Win9x needing a special procedure to make it active.
