Old School DOS question.

I know DOS has a limit of how many files can be in a single directory. Anyone know what that is?

After further investigation (dusted off an old DOS book)...according to this source, only the root directory has a limit...512 for Fat16. Subdirectories have no limit. I know that the 'DIR' command will only show something like 2590 files, but I think that is a command limit, not a FS limit. In that case, I'd be more apt to believe this theory.
