actually, when accessing across a network the fat table has NOTHING to do with file sharing. Its in the o/s. Just remember the 7 layers, they take care of the translations. So the fat table will have nothing to do with it. If using Linux and Win to file share and print share, use something like Samba.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
