3-5-4] Joliet

(2002/06/24)

Microsoft, being Microsoft, created their own standard called "Joliet".
This is currently supported by Win95 and WinNT. It's useful when doing
backups from Win95 onto a CD-R, because the disc is still readable as
ISO-9660 but shows the long filenames under Win95. The limit on Joliet
filenames is 64 characters. (Some software reportedly allows up to 110.)

The spec can be found at
http://bmrc.berkeley.edu/people/chaffee/jolspec.html.

Recent versions of Linux (kernel >= 2.0.34 and 2.1.60) have Joliet
support. Older versions can be patched; for details, see
http://www-plateau.cs.berkeley.edu/people/chaffee/joliet.html.

To patch Joliet support into OS/2, visit:
http://service.software.ibm.com/os2ddpak/html/miscellb/os_2warp/updatedc/index.htm

For the Macintosh, use Joliet Volume Access (http://www.tempel.org/joliet/).

Some old Creative CD-ROM drivers have trouble with CD-ROMs that have Joliet
filenames. You may need an updated copy of sbided95.exe. It used to be
available from http://www.ctlsg.creaf.com/, but that site no longer exists.
