Programs can be developed using only one 800K disk drive, but veryfrequent disk exchanges will be required. Using two drives, at leastone of which is 800K, is much more efficient. Microsoft recommendstwo drives, at least one of which is 800K or larger. For the seriousdeveloper, a hard disk is better still.
