Mounting MSDOS HardDrives: NLS Charset Error
Posted on 1998-11-10
When I go to mount my msdos hard drives from within Linux I get the following error message:
Unable to load NLS charset cp437 (nls_cp437)
I mount like this: mount /dev/hda1 /c:
The mounting, though, was successful as I am able to access my msdos hard drives. I just don;t like that error message. When I do the mounting from with in X windows, thru the X term, I don't get this error message what so ever as if X windows handled the problem.
Oh and one more thing. I notice my msdos mounted hard drives have all their filenames in the 8-char.3-char format of old msdos and not the long filenames of win95. How do I get linux to recognize the long filenames of my msdos mounted HDs?
