I am going to burn Redhat 5.1 to a CD. I have downloaded the whole thing from a FTP. I wonder what kind of "filesystem" should I use?
should i use ISO9660 or Joliet? If I burn with ISO9660 doesent the files be limited to 8.3 character?

No, ISO9660 does not limit you to 8.3 file names.
The ISO9660 does have a specific character set which dosen't include a lot of the
"punctuation marks" which are not legal(sorry I do not remember which ones).
For a CD that's readable by Linux use ISO9660 and you shoule be o.k.
