[Fwd: [seul-edu] Hidedn files...]

-- BEGIN included message

Sorry, I thought I had said that is was not Unix hidden files (ie "dot" files),
but actually hidden somehow in DOS, like the old ATTRIB command .  I didn't
think Linix cared about those things from another filesystem, especially and
ISO type.  Any other thoughts of how to get these files?
