Re: vfat in mount of msdos file system

This is a new 1.3.6x kernel feature. Windows 95 long and multi-case
filenames are supported using "mount -t vfat ..." . You will need the
"vfat" module loaded if that is not part of your kernel. Cat
/proc/filesystems, and see if the word "vfat" appears there. If not,
try "insmod vfat", and if that does not work you may have to build a
custom kernel.

The "vfat" driver is still a bit shaky - I've heard it can overflow the
kernel stack.
