Re: mount trouble with MSDOS fs

/proc/filesystems shows that msdos, vfat are
present.  I definitely compiled them into the
kernel sometime back.

The error msg is:

# mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /mnt
[MS-DOS FS Rel. 12, FAT 16, check=n,conv=b,uid=0, ...]
[me=0xf8,cs=8,#f=2, ...]
Translation block size = 512
VFS:  Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on dev
mount:  wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1
or too many mounted filesystems

No kernel support? You need to have the fat and msdos modules installed,
or compiled in. (fat is a base for both msdos and vfat). What's the 
message you're getting?
