view long file names from windows in linux


Does anyone know of a command line option for ls, or for mount, that will allow me to view my mounted win98 drives long file names in linux normally? i.e. not mydocu~1 or something like that.

I don't think files on windows harddrives ever appear as mydocu~1 on linux. Just mount and ls like you normally would. If i'm wrong, you can always do a man mount and find out, but from my experience, the mount options are usuall pretty similar. Only thing you would have to worry about is permissions.

I have it mounted as -t msdos, which I guess makes sense now that I think about it, that's all DOS knows about the files.
