Re: Mounting a FAT32 partition

msdos only allowed 8.3 file format. Use vfat instead to get LFN.

My name is Srikrishan and I am quite new to Linux, working on it for
last 3 months.

I 've a small query that goes like this.

I've installed RH6.2 on a machine that also has Windows 95 installed in
respective partitions. Windows partition is in FAT32.
To access that partition I mount that partition under Linux. Although I
am able to
see all my files, only that I don't see them in Long File Name Format

I am mounting the partition with the following command:

mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /mnt/mypartition

I'll be grateful to LI-Delhi if somebody can help me out to see my files
in LFN.
