(1) How do I go about implementing long file names on my current Novell 4.1 server, including for both hard drive AND CD-ROMs?  (2) How will VRepair treat long filenames?  Will I ruin the file structure if I run VRepair once long filenames is implemented?  (3)  How will my DOS applications respond to long file names?  Will they just shorten the long filenames with a ~ like they do under Windows95?  (4) Is using long filenames safe and reliable?

1. load os2.nam per the instructions in the novel manual for the volumes you want to support. Note - there is an increase in the space taken up by directory information and you do need space to do it. The manual has all the caculations required.
Re CR-ROMS - think there is a switch when you load CDROM to allow long name support.
2. Vrepair is ok with long name space. Takes a longer to do a repair but havent had any other effects.
3. They will trucate - no way around this as far as i know.
4. Havent had any problems with it on many servers.
