Hi William,

Calmira relies on what Windows provides. When Windows 3.1 queries a
directory over a network, it only gets the short filenames returned by
the win95 machine.

The CD code is made by Les Williams, and not suited for networks. I
tried making a network LFN interface, but I discovered that the LFN
functions in WFWNET.DRV were all stubbed and not functional. So I have
to come up with another interface going through NETAPI.DLL, which is
quite a bit harder.
