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, ...]
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?
