Does Netware have a significantly different length limit to filenames and pathnames than Windows? When I try to copy a huge directory structure created under Windows (FAT32) to a Netware NSS volume, I'm constantly plagued by aborts in Windows Explorer that turn out to be solved by shortening file and folder names. However, there were so many cases of this I finally gave up and shared the external drive off a Windows box rather than putting the data where I wanted on the Netware server.

What's the reason behind all this and what's the best way to deal with it?
