mounting cdroms with long filenames

im pulling my hair out here!
all i can get a cdrom, or anything else created on a windows box for that matter, vfat or iso9660, to display their filenames in 8.3 like in dos.

this is the sux for wine. i get a slew of errors like, cant find blahblahblah.dll and i find blahb~1.dll in its tree.

please help....

I don't know what program you are using to 'burn' your cd's on your windows box, but I'm using NERO when on my win2k box. I use the ISO Level 2, Joliet, ISO9660, and seem to have no problem.
Notice on this link: that to see long file names on windows (and this would apply to unix as well) that you have to use 'Joliet'.

So, I would suggest you try burning your CD's with the Joliet extension enabled, and see if that solves the problem.
