I did follow the book =). However, the part related to that was only about 2-3 
pages. I guess I got a little confused. I'm still not 100% in understanding the 
allocation group part. I think I get it if the AllocationGroup class represents 
not an allocation group, but a group of bitmap blocks mapping the blocks of an 
allocation group. Is this correct? As soon as I understand it 100%, I'll put 
some quick comments to explain at least the parts where I got confused. Thanks 
for you patience =),
