What you "know" about Red Hat 5.2 is incorrect.  Check my web page for

This page is probably 95-99% accurate for RH 6.0, too, but I've not yet
checked it out.

Quote:> Is there software to create Rock Ridge CD in windows?

Again, this information is on my web page.

1. How to install Module for Joliet-filesystem CD-ROM in Linux


I have Joliet-filesystem CD-ROM backed-up in WIN NT.
I need to read that CD-ROM in Linux (Kernel 2.0.27).
I got module of "joliet_fat32_nls_patch-0.2.7".
I typed  command like "patch -p0 < joliet_fat32_nls_patch-0.2.7".
But I got the following error:

~/linux$ patch -p0 < joliet_fat32_nls_patch-0.2.7
Hmm...  I can't seem to find a patch in there anywhere.

I would appreciate any comments for this error.
I prefer an E-mail response
