Hello.

I have been trying to learn exactly how the FAT filesystem works, but I am having no such luck searching on Google. I found a comment on some obscure forum saying to look into the FIRE Linux distro and you'll find some good PDFs, but I did and didn't find anything. Could someone point me to a webpage or something good? If possible maybe a list of references for the various filesystems out there?

Whatever it is, I need something that'll tell me everything I need to know, at least on the FAT32 filesystem.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry for not explaining this subject in original terms on this website; I have just spent the greater part of two hours practicing my German (which at the moment ist nicht so gut! :cry: and thusly my brain hurts).  Anyway, I have uploaded to my website a few documents that should help you out (one was taken from when I worked at Symantec and thusly is written in a professional manner while the other is some tutorial that I found on the next a long time ago and have dug out of my library).

Should you have any questions then please feel free to post them here and if I can not get to them (after I perform a brain dump by watching a Tales from the Crypt marathon) then perhaps someone else can answer them for you.

Here is the link to the file:

Also take a look at http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?p=55609#55609 . A user has uploaded a PDF from Microsoft

PS: Warning - while you were reading a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.

Certainly I want :P It is the same doc, but in the fasm forum it is a PDF, not DOC.

Thanks, everyone!

This is surely all I need for the moment. If I have any questions I'll come back and ask.
