win-filenames shortened

when I open folders or files on a pc-zip on my mac system 7.6.1 all the win95 names and even the folder names are shortened to 6 letters ~ and number .extension
this makes it impossible to install programs or really shitty to burn cds on the mac cause you always have to compare all of the names to be sure the cd is ok.
what do I do wrong or how can I get rid of the problem ?

There will be no direct way since MAC isn't able to read the full Windows 95 file names. You could use a packer software which is available on both system (ZIP (Winzip on Windows and zipit on MAC) or stuffit). Or use Windows NT with Services for Macintosh.
