You underestimate the wonderfull world of MS :
- on MS Dos, you can have USB (with 'duse' drivers) but not the long
filenames (even with the Win98 Dos).
- on Win NT, you've got the long filenames, but not the USB.

I had to make a linux boot/root disk to get USB _and_ long filenames
on my Win NT PC at work !
