where my questions that rediculous :) & i wasn't specifically asking u to answer all of them
i know 32 bits are for 4 GB address space
0-0xBFFFFFFF for user-thead
0-0xFFFFFFFF for kernel-thread
in each process.
actually, i am studying a little bit of it, my first interview is about 10 days away. & i don't know what they
may ask ??
some links for FAQs in interview for freshers would be helpful
