In the old days, I changed the name of the file before I downloaded
it. In Linux 2.0.0 or greater, you can choose VFAT instead of MSDOS
file system support. You might already have VFAT available as a
module. If not, you can recompile the kernel.
When you mount the hard disk partition, use type VFAT instead of MSDOS
(the -t option in mount... # man 8 mount)
If you are mounting the DOS partition automatically, then edit your
/etc/fstab file. Change the occurrences of msdos to vfat.
