ZipSlack and files with long names

I'm using Zipslack. The problem is it renames files with long names when it boots and I can't use them. Is the problem related in any way with FAT 32?

Thanks in advance!

Sure is ... if you change the fstab line that points at your
windows-drive to say vfat instead of msdos it should work...

But then, I've never used zipslack :}
