i hope u know that in certain processors, the memory is segmented(or divided)...basically its not physically segmented rather its logical....the purpose is to store code,data,stack etc in different parts of memory.... so there should be some way to specify the starting address of each such segments.....so wat i want to convey is"segment registers hold the starting address of a segment"
i hope u got it......
