Besides just having the module installed, you need to mount those DOS
partitions as type vfat, not msdos:

    gonzo@newton [~] $ mount
    /dev/hda3 on / type ext2 (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    /dev/hda2 on /usr type ext2 (rw)
    /dev/hdb4 on /home type ext2 (rw)
    /dev/hda1 on /dos/c type vfat (rw)
    /dev/hda4 on /dos/d type vfat (rw)
    /dev/hdb1 on /dos/e type vfat (rw)
    /dev/hdb2 on /dos/f type vfat (rw)
