Did I make my /etc/filesystems wrong? I wasn't aware of
/proc/filesystems when I made /etc/filesystems, and identifying vfat
over msdos works. (funny how devfs is 'nodev')
Hmm, 'vfat', 'msdos', and 'iso9660' were made as modules.
modprobe-ing them adds them to the list in /proc/filesystems, at the
end (with no options, like "nodev").
Perhaps /proc/filesystems is the default order _if_ /etc/filesystems
doesn't exist? If I don't have /etc/filesystems, and I don't have the
vfat module loaded, will a vfat disk be identified? Time to RTFM and
try it out ...
