If I build a dual-boot system (Win95 and FreeBSD), will I be able to
manipulate the Messy-DOS partition from within FreeBSD? That is, does
the "msdos" filesystem type support long file names and extended
Chad, a couple of things here.
Just to be nitpicky - the MSDOS filesystem does not support long file
names, thats the VFAT file system. Linux has support for VFAT, I'm not
too sure about FreeBSD.
The attributes from the non-FreeBSD side ( MSDOS or VFAT ) will not be
preserved, at least I don't think they will. :/
