    OS Urgent


    Can anybody please help in the following assignment and point me to a link where I can get the required information. I googlized the net but not confused about the information and the example. Many Thanks. Silvia.
    /**********************************************/
    Having investigated the file access control mechanisms used by one Microsoft operating system and one version of Linux, write a report (1500 words minimum) written to academic and detailing the results of the investigation. The report should give a detailed example of how file access control is implemented in those operating systems.
    Please note: You will get 0 marks for using as your example an operating, such as MS-DOS, that does not implement a file access mechanism.

    I'm not sure where to help you. The assignment assumes you've already investigated the file access methods for both Windows and Linux platforms. Just write a report on the similarities and differences between them. If you haven't done that, I'd suggest your textbook; it might have the comparison detailed in there already or even have some useful links.
