I don't think this is a Mac problem.  I've done a number of CDs for folks 
on the mac68k list and I've had the same problem.  The filenames show up 
correctly under NetBSD, but on the Mac and on Windows-3.11, Windows-95 
and Windows-NT they show up as mangled 8.3 names.  I don't have this 
problem with CDs created using Joliet or Mac-type filename extensions if 
they're created under MacOS or Windows with the Adaptec application. It 
only seems to happen when I master the disks using "mkisofs" under 
NetBSD, and it's consistent with both the mac68k and i386 ports.  As far 
as I can tell the real solution will be to get "myhybrid" up and running. 
 It's an extended version of "mkisofs" that supports both Joliet and 
Mac-type extensions in addition to Rock Ridge.
