    The reason you have to tell CP/M / TDOS what drives are attached is 
that C/PM was originally written for use on computers with no ROM BIOS . 
The Bios is a part of the OS and a different BIOS had to be written for 
each unique machine it was installed on.
    These days we are spoiled with ROM BIOS on board and tend to forget 
the "good/bad old days".
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)
