Isn't the answer in the error message? (And in Jason's reply.)
If vfat is unsupported, then I would expect something like:
mount -t xenix /dev/sdc4 /mnt/fred
mount: fs type xenix not supported by kernel
If the mount point doesn't exist, then:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdc4 /mnt/fred
mount: mount point /mnt/fred does not exist
But you got:

So the output of fdisk might be more help than the fact that you
did a "flat" install, whatever that means.
I can only help you as far as:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdc /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc,
or too many mounted file systems
(i.e. trying to mount the whole disk) because I have no extended
partitions on any of my linux systems.
