mount floppy and long file name - SCO

hello, I formatted a floppy in windows as FAT. Naturally, in windows and FAT file system i could create long file names. How can i mount this floppy in SCO so that when i copy to it then SCO's long file names are copied and preserved ? As I unmount and check the disk in windows I see that all filenames are truncated and upper case. n.b: i mount as: mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy Regards, Elias...

    Why not use dosformat under Unix?

    Why do you need the directory called /mnt/floppy, instead of just using
    /mnt?

    In reality, you are try to set up OpenServer to work the way Linux does!

    To my knowledge, you would have to format the floppy diskette(s) and create
    a filesystem which would retain the long filenames. Not all filesystem
    types permit that.

    I'm assuming that the requirement is that you create a floppy which
    can be accessed both from some version of Windows and from some
    version of SCO Unix, and on which long filenames are preserved
    in both environments.

    Various versions of Windows can handle FAT, NTFS, and HTFS floppies
    with long names. Of those, OSR5 (I didn't see the earlier parts of
    the thread so I'm assuming that this is an OSR5 question) supports
    only FAT. It can mount FAT filesystems, and you can use the dos
    utilities (man doscmd) to manipulate them, but neither option
    supports long filenames.

    mtools is the answer. It's downloadable in custom-installable
    form from SCO's FTP site.

    $> I need to preserve long filename and the case sensitivity of the files.

    You may need to preserve long filenames; you don't need to preserve
    case sensitivity, as Windows doesn't support case sensitivity. As
    Microsoft puts it, Windows filesystems are case-preserving but
    not case-sensitive. If you create a file called Joe, it may
    appear as Joe, but if you tell a program to open Joe or joe or
    JOE or jOE, it will open the same file.
