Yes,  this is true.  If you have them compiled as modules,  you may need
to do "insmod vfat" to get the kernel module loaded before you can mount
any VFAT partitions.  Generally speaking,  I don't ever want to *unload* a
vfat module (how often do you unmount your vfat partition?),  so I
compiled it into the kernel rather than as a module.
	Otherwise you can put them in /etc/conf.modules to get kerneld to
auto-load them.
