I completely forgot that FAT32 won't support those. I was only thinking
of access information. You are absolutely right though, it sure won't.

You know what? That's a wonderful idea and unless there is a particular
reason you can't do it, Karen I would recommend you consider doing that.
That way you get all the benefits of Linux, and the ability to run DOS
if you need to. You can just format all your disk space as Linux, then
use dosemu to run anything in DOS that you need. I did this a couple
years ago to host an old fashon BBS that ran some DOS based door games.
