Default scaffold and contig

Hi all,
Does somebody know what's scaffold and the differences between scaffold and contigs? Thank you very much.

A contig is a contiguous length of genomic sequence.
A scaffold is composed of contigs and gaps. Gap length can be guessed by incorporating information from paired ends or mate pairs (difference between the two).

at genbank's mallard genome ftp, they give an ~1.1GB fasta
file of "unplaced scaffolds" with 78487 sequences
of length 100-5998093
When I try to match them to the chicken chromosome 1
then I get a continuous distribution in matching subsequences.
Shouldn't there be a sharp peak for those mallard "scaffolds"
that are from chromosome 1 , shouldn't they be detectable this way ?

15% of chicken and turkey 28-subsequences
in chromosome 1 do match
only ~3% in chicken vs.human or chr1 vs. chr2

chromosomes are not available for mallards at genbank

I found:
> An in silico digest of the chicken genome, which is very similar [25,26], predicts similar genome
> fractions of the RRLs of 4.1% for AluI, but only 0.2% for HhaI (data not shown).

don't know what that means

Funny indeed
I am looking forward to such a spam in the thread about deletion, inversion and insertion...
