Subject: boot-floppies bug #43057 rawrite uses 8.3 names

> Easy workaround to this is to rename the bootdisks.
> Filenames have to be limited to 8.3, they cant be bigger
> One idea would be to shorten resc to rsc and add a code to represent the
> type of bootdisk.
> eg.
> resc1440.bin becomes rsc1440.bin
> resc1440-safe.bin becomes rsc1440s.bin
> resc1200.bin becomes rsc1200.bin
> resc1200-safe.bin becomes rsc1200s.bin
> Thanks
