Hello Peter!

I have just tried on a -CURRENT as of yesterday (9th, that is) and got this
with a fairly old floppy (I think it is a DOS install floppy):

fonix# ls -l /floppy

I cannot see a problem here. (Permissions are right and upper case letters
are maintained.) Maybe the problem is with Windows-generated floppies?

Besides, I ususally use the 'mtools' package for that occasional floppy,
because it does not require me to mount the floppy before using it. I do not
know for the memory cards, because I do not have a digital camera:-)

Just a data point...
