Sven, if you read all of his problem, you'll see it has nothing to do
with not having FAT compiled into his kernel. It'd be nice if you would
stop chastising people for compiling their own kernel instead of using a
debian supplied one... expecting people running an open-source OS to not
compile software themselves seems silly.
