fat32 in installation vfat module?
I hope it's not inappropriate to cross-post this. I thought it somewhat
relevant to both groups.
I'm interested in submitting a 'Beginner's Debian Installation Guide' of
some sort. I have about 80% of the framework of one completed, but am
concerned about the lack of fat32 support. As is stands, if someone has a
new computer formatted in fat32, they would have to format a fat16
partition to download the packages into. the vfat module in the
installation process won't allow a fat32 partition to be mounted and the
base-install doesn't have full ppp support for dialup.
I'm afraid I'm no programmer, I'm a user trying to learn as much as I can
and help out, if possible. I don't know how difficult it would be to make
the installation vfat module fat32 compliant. I would, however, like to
submit a document for review.
Should I submit one based on the current situation, or could the module be
'patched'? I would be very appreciative to hear any opinion on this, and
how such a document might be received.
TIA for your consideration :)
