there's http://taniwha.org/lfn.zip
I think you'll also need http://taniwha.org/djasm.zip to build it (I extended
djasm and I'm not sure which parts have been merged). I'm pretty sure I had it
reading /and/ writing, though I'm not sure about its fat32 support (reading is
ok, but I never got to test the writing). A few things to watch out for: the
short name is a (probably `poor') 48 bit crc of the long name; it's case
sensitive; the short name is inaccessable if there is a long name; the short
name is always uppercase; (most importantly) it MIGHT EAT YOUR DATA :)
