Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So, change it back to vfat
I would have to agree that you should change it back to vfat. If you do not want the 8.3 msdos names. I use auto as the fs type to mount mine. I have to issue the command mount /mnt/WinLin but I can do it just like you do a floppy as a normal user.
Here is my etc/fstab (note the rw in the last line)
Execute? Can you qualify that? Surely only a linux- executeable program, no? Doesn't seem quite right somehow. I'm happy enough reading and writing to VFAT. Executing on it (while in Linux) sounds like dodgy territory.
