Update: mounting MS-DOS fs onto Linux

Here's what I tried:

0. Looked at /proc/filesystems to verify
that VFAT was supported.

1. Ran "dmesg | more" to verify that /dev/hda1
was the correct partition.

2. Ran mount and got this result:

# mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt
[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12, FAT 16,check=n,conv=b,uid=0,gid=0,umask=022,bmap]
Transaction block size = 512
VFS:  Can't find a valid MS-DOS filesystem on dev 03:01
mount:  wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1
or too many mounted filesystems

Any clues what's wrong here?
