reading from disk

In windows is possible to find what information is contained at a particular place on a floppy disk (ie track, side, sector). If so can this be done directly or do you have to use functions provided by the OS?

thanks

    Yes. In Win2k you can open a device driver for disk or floppy (CreateFile with file name = \.A \.C and seek throught SetFilePointer) and in Win9x you can do this by Int (propably 25 , but I'm not sure).
    You also can write your own disk driver (for IDE is wery easy)
