(?) Getting UVFAT

From AaronWL on Sun, 18 Jun 2000

do you know where i could get a working uvfat for linux 2.2.x? i cant find any info on it anywhere.. and im getting desperate..

(!) I presume you're looking for UMSDOS/VFAT support from your kernel. In other words you want to access Win '9x long file names and you want to be able to store UNIX/Linux meta-data (permissions, ownership and group association) on your MS-DOS filesystems.
The uvfat code is included with the mainstream Linux kernel sources. So, just compile a new kernel, and select "Y" and/or "M" (module) for the UMSDOS and VFAT support options.
Be sure to read the "The Linux Kernel HOWTO" (http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html) for details on building new kernels.
