you're partly right. OS9/68000 has 28 character filenames, but still uses a
3-byte lsn. Here's what the manual says:
"The filename field (DIR_NM) is 28 bytes long (bytes 0-27 of the entry) and
has the sign bit of the last character of the file name set. The first byte
is set to zero to indicate a deleted or unused entry. The address field
(DIR_FD) is 3 bytes long (bytes 29-31 of the entry) and is the LSN of the
file's FD sector. Byte 28 is not used and must be zero."
