Rename a dos file - how to?
I have installed zipslack on my old laptop (p133), using dos and my laplink cable to transfer the files from my XP desktop to the laptop (no cd-rom drive). Everything has gone good so far, but now I have run into a snag.
I have transfered some files over (using DOS and my laplink) to the laptop, but since they were xfered over in DOS, the filenames have been changed (they were more than 8 characters long). I noticed when I look at them when running zipslack, they also have a * at the end of the filename.
I have tried the mv command to change the names, but it still only lets me change the name to 8 chars long, and theyu still have a * at the end.
Is there any way around this, as I need to change the names back to the long ones so i can install some packages....
