cp -R or similar, the destination was much bigger than the source

Source was made by Win2K, destination was made either by Win2K or
Mandrake 9.1 with mkfs.msdos. I'm leaning towards Win2K though.

The copy was to be done using LBT to copy the root partition. I started
with the FAT32 partition and stopped when it screwed up. Later I used
the Mandrake install CD to copy everything else and it worked fine.
