long file names and their 8-chars versions



Hello,
we have a ubuntu-server edgy file server (file system of the shared files: ext3) and a win xp client with an old program that shows up the 8-char version of long file names.
While in windows the association is as follows:
longfilename -> LONGFI~1
longfilename2 -> LONGFI~2

...in ext3 the association is not so 'straight-on' and this forces my colleague to guess the names...

Is there a way to force a windows-like association between long file names and their short version?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Marco
