to zip the downloaded cvs repository under windows and expand it under 
beos on a bfs partition. you'll then get better results.

It's not the FAT driver under BeOS it's FAT - Windows still use the 
short DOS name if it can, so if you have a name shorter than 9 
characters all in the same case, there is no way to say if it has been 
lowercase or uppercase.
So if you copy the files on another partition, they are completely 
screwed. A better solution is to check them out on a NTFS partition. 
The best solution is to download them under BeOS directly.
