cat /etc/fstab or cat /proc/mounts

The one that is giving me problems is 32 characters long.  I'm moving

file system is fat/fat32/ext3 etc. How do I find this out so I can let
you know?

Who long are the file names?
To what FS are you trying to move the files to? ext3? fat/fat32?
As far as I remember, ext3 filenames are limited to 255 characters.

I was wondering how do I get the FC3 file system to accept longer file

error
of the file being too many characters and to rename it.  The problem
is
I can't rename these files for whatever reason.  Help!
