I have a sytem running Redhat 4.2 of Linux. While installing
linux, I configured the DOS/Win95 partitions to be visible &
mountable from linux. I can see these partitions. However, I
have two problems. They are:
1. The files on the dos partitions are seen only with the 8.3
filenames. Longer names are truncated.
2. I can't seem to write into these partitions if I'm not
logged on as root. Even as root, I cannot change the
mode/ownership of files/directories on these dos partitions.
I want to store some user files in the dos partitions and
would like to avoid doing these things as root.
I would appreciate any help in resolving these issues. Thanks
