What kind of issues related to I/O does multiprogramming have?

    Hi Ho!

    When someone would like to implement a multiprogramming in a computer system, what kind of issues related to I/O does he have to consider?
    Is there any difference between the implementation of multiprogramming in the system that uses interrupt driven I/O and the system that uses DMA?

    I have never done any system programming so that I don't have any clue about the issues related to I/O in implementing multiprogramming. So, pointers to other resources would be very helpful.

    Thank you.
