Lets Unix systems work with DOS files

A set of tools that lets Unix systems access files on an MS-DOS filesystem (usually a floppy). Each program emulates the equivalent MS-DOS command while omitting any unnecessary restrictions and oddities. It now supports the long filenames found in Windows 95 and Windows NT, ZIP/JAZ disks, OS/2 Xdf disks, and 2m disks (stores up to 1992k on a high-density 3.5 floppy), and FAT 32.
