strange problem :)

i have a dual boot drive is formated as fat32 so that i can share files between windows2000 and Linux...actually i was trying to install Oracle 9i on Linux 9...i coppied the CD using windows on the drive with FAT32 and accessed in linux and run the script that is "runInstaller" keep in mind that "I" is it worked and i was successfull...
next time i used the same Cd but didnt copy on hard disk...i mounted the CD but now the name of "runInstaller" is "runinstaller" (with a small "i")
and when i issued tha command ./runinstaller it gives error no such a file or directory and if i try to run ./runInstaller...i get the same i again coppied the CD using linux command and tried to run this script but error is still only successfull way is to copy the Cd using windows2000 cmmand and then reboot to Linux and now issue ./runInstaller...
can anyone guess what this behaviour is all about

part of the problem could be the permissions set on the CDROM drive. Some distros don't allow execution of CDROM files by default. You might need to mount the cdrom with the option "-o exec".

I have also noticed capitalisation problems when using cdemu to mount bin/cue files. I have never experienced the problem when mounting CDs, but maybe its related. Maybe there is a mounting option that forces the names to lower case.

EDIT: ooh, ooh, maybe I know: you might not have support for Rock Ridge extensions. In that case, you would be seeing the CD filesystem as being case insensitive. In that case, you might need to recompile the kernel with Rock Ridge support.
