    You are the administrator for a LAN that uses the bus topology to connect to seven workstations. Each workstation runs Windows XP. What would you need to do if you wanted to add a workstation to the network and enable other workstations to read data from the new workstation's hard disk?
    • A. 

      Apply shared access to the appropriate folders on the new workstation.

    • B. 

      Modify the sharing services parametesr in the domain controller's operating system.

    • C. 

      Modify the file sharing properties on each workstation on the network so that each can read from the added workstation.

    • D. 

      Add the new workstation's account to the folder-sharing group on the network.

  • 7. 
    What would happen to the entire network if one of the nodes in the bus-wired network failed?
