2. C. Renaming a file doesn't change its encryption status, but the file must remain on an NTFS disk. The copy made onto drive D therefore is unencrypted, and it's this copy that's later restored to drive C. (If you use a backup program instead of a copy operation, you can maintain the file's encryption status as long as you restore the file to an NTFS disk.) Review 'Encryption.'
3. A, B, C, and D. Users can see files that other users have encrypted, but that's it - they can't open, edit, delete, or rename them. If you think about it, it has to be this way: A Recovery Agent can't recover a file if he can't even find it in Windows Explorer. Review 'Encryption.'
4. D. Striping is the fastest disk setup in Windows XP Professional. You have to have dynamic disks in order to support striping, so A and B are out. Spanned volumes don't do a thing for speed. Review 'Basic versus dynamic disks.'
5. A. When you copy or move a compressed file to a folder on another NTFS volume, the file inherits the compression status of the destination folder. Memorize this and other compression rules in 'Copying and moving.'
6. B. Service Pack 4 is the minimum level necessary to ensure that you can boot to Windows NT 4.0 and still see NTFS disks after Windows XP automatically upgrades them to NTFS Version 5. Review 'New NTFS perks.'
7. B and D. The maximum size of a file on a FAT disk is 2GB; on a FAT32 disk, 4GB; and on an NTFS disk, 16TB. For all practical purposes, file size is limited only by the size of the disk. Windows XP and 2000 use NTFS Version 5; Windows NT 4.0 uses NTFS Version 4. Review 'NTFS basics.'
8. B. Just because an NT system can 'see' an NTFS Version 5 disk doesn't mean that NT 4.0 can use the features that NTFS Version 5 and Windows XP make possible. Review 'New NTFS perks.'
9. A. The CONVERT program doesn't need to be told whether the present disk is FAT or FAT32; it can figure that out on its own. Review 'From FAT or FAT32 to NTFS.'
Chapter 4: Installing Windows XP Professional
* Performing an attended installation of Windows XP Professional
* Installing Windows XP Professional by using Remote Installation Services (RIS)

Installing Windows NT Workstation was never a piece of cake, and Microsoft knew that it had to do significantly better on the installation procedure if it wanted to make the NT-family platform less user-hostile. Fortunately, you'll have much more hair left on your head after installing Windows XP than after installing NT - or even 2000.
In addition to installing Windows XP Professional interactively, Microsoft provides three separate methods for installing the software in an automated fashion. In this chapter, I cover what you must know about all the various methods, starting with the one-user, one-machine, interactive install.
1. To install Windows XP onto a Windows 3.1 PC, run the program ______.
Attended installation of Windows XP Professional
2. To ensure networking components install correctly in a domain environment, verify that a ______ and a ______ are available at install time.
3. Two server operating systems that can run RIS are ______ and ______.
Using Remote Installation Services (RIS)
4. The network services that must be available in a RIS environment are ______, ______, and ______.
5. When a user starts a PC for the first time after it has been configured using SysPrep, the ______ executes one time only.
Using the System Preparation Tool
6. The default name for an answer file is ______.
7. The batch file that Setup Manager creates to run setup with an answer file is named ______.
Using Setup Manager to automate the installation
8. Update packs usually consist of ______ files.
Preparing a computer to meet upgrade requirements
9. To perform a quick software and hardware compatibility check, run WINNT32.EXE with the ______ qualifier.
Migrating existing user environments
10. (True/False) Windows XP is just like Windows NT 4.0 in that you must reapply service packs after making major configuration changes.
1. WINNT.EXE. Use WINNT32.EXE for Windows Me, 98, NT, or 2000, as I explain in the section 'Which setup?'
2. Domain controller, DNS server. See the 'Network choices' section for more.
3. Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server. When Windows 2002 Server comes out, that'd be correct too. See 'Method three: RIS' in this chapter.
4. DNS, DHCP, Active Directory. See 'Method three: RIS' for more on this remote installation method.
5. Mini-Setup Wizard. The 'Using SysPrep' section explains.
6. UNATTEND.TXT. However, you can use other names. The 'Scripting basics' section goes into detail.
