* The physical positioning of the heads over a specific track location is identified as

  1. Track mapping
  2. Logical Partitioning
  3. Cylinders
  4. Skew

* The logical versus physical location of sectors within a track is known as

  1. Track partitioning
  2. Skew
  3. Sector Partioning
  4. Track Mapping

* Most current operationg systems and trends in software allow for large capacity disk access,
   but many setups still utilize ( physical / logical ) partitioning of the hard-drives.
   These are simply assignments of the divisioning of the hard-drive.

* The physical location of the heads of a hard-drive over a specific track location
    is identified as "_____________",  rather than tracks, because of multiple heads.

* The current 5-1/4" disk-drive, known as the "DS/DD", has ____ tracks, ____ sectors,
    and has a capacity of _____ Kb

* The current 5-1/4" disk-drive, known as the "DS/HD", has ____ tracks, ____ sectors,
    and has a capacity of _____ Kb

* An almost forgotten 5-1/4" disk-rive, that has 80 track, "DS/DD", is called a ________-Density Drive.

* The current 3-1/2" disk-drive, known as the "DS/DD", has ____ tracks, ____ sectors,
    and has a capacity of _____ Kb

* The current 3-1/2" disk-drive, known as the "DS/HD", has ____ tracks, ____ sectors,
    and has a capacity of _____ Kb

* During disk-drive alignment, the use of a standard alignment disk that has two signals on adjacent tracks,
  will show up on an oscilloscope as a special pattern like opposing simultanious sine-waves,
  called the "_________- _______", to allow adjustment of head centering on the correct track.
