    I plan to transfer my 20 gig mp3 collection to my future powerbook (the next revision) over from my amd box.
    Question is will the files comes across to the mac like this?

    New Ord~1

    or this

    I remember in Mac OS9 that I had to rename a bunch of songs that I transferred over from Windows. I am hoping that OSX does a better job with Windows long file names. I would hate to rename 6500 songs. Any answers are greatly appreciated.
