    Oh, I see: if you may a shortcut to different types of executable, you get
    a different types of shortcuts.

    In any case, try creating a shortcut to a data file (be it autoexec.bat or
    a Word document) and then try dragging it onto Notepad or Word,

    I rest my case: if Win 95 doesn't know how to deal with shortcuts, I doubt
    vfat should try.
