SAMBA - Windows XP Filenames
I have a Debian Sarge Server running samba with two Disks. The first disk has the OS on it with all home directories etc. in other words (/).
The second disk has a partition called /work mounted on it used as a shared repository for Windows xp clients.
The problem I have is when a file with a long filename (65 chrs) is copied from an xp machine to /work I get an xp error of "filename too long", but when I copy the same file to /home (which is on the other disk) it works fine.
I have carried out a few tests i.e creating a directory within /home with the same file path length as the offending directory in /work to see if I can replicate the problem, and I can't.
The two disks are providing different results.
Has anybody experienced a similar problem? Maybe a special mount option needs to be specified within /etc/fstab. I can't seem to find any answers!!!
Any help is appreciated

Should you find the solution, please post back - I am curious as to the cause of this as well. This one is new to me!
