Preserving long file names when copying from DOSNTFS

I am recovering data from a messed up NT workstation using DOSNTFS. I'm going to copy the data to a FAT partition on another drive. How can I preserve the long file names in the process?

use winzip (or another program which is able to handle long filenames) and back it to one file which has 8.3 name convention. Copy this file. FAT don^t support long file names.

I actually ended up just installing another instance of NT on the same drive. Therefore, the long filenames were not an issue. Thanks anyway; sounds like a smart solution that would have worked.
