I've posted doslfn 0.1
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/Incoming/doslfn01.tgz

This package is a beta of modification of msdos file
system in linux, that support long file name, compatible
with lfn in FAT on Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.5x
filesystem msdos msdosls fat lfn

Only take the file from doslfn01.tgz in the fs/msdos directory of
Linux 1.3.8 source, and rebuild kernel (make dep...)

You'll be able to create file with long file name in FAT partition,
and share these long name with Windows NT 3.5x and Windows 95.

Beta test is welcome !

 
 
 

1. Test Long file name in FAT (new fs/msdos) - Win95 and NT compatible !

I've modified the fs/msdos of Linux 1.3.8 for support FAT with long
file name, compatible with long file name of Windows NT 3.5 and
Windows 95. This allow us share a FAT partition and files between
Linux and Windows, with long name...

You can download :
