not to be picky, but just to point it out, having sub-directories in
/mnt is non-standard (well, to most linuces/unices, redhat seems to
have other opinions on the matter) and non-FHS compliant.  of course
this is your machine, so you can do whatever you want, and you wont face
any consequences for doing it this way, but if you ever end up jointly
administering a machine, this could result in headaches.  if it's
something you intend to have mounted for more than just a short amount
of time, i'd put it somewhere like /windows or /usr/local/win or
something.

also, i agree with the ro setting.  yes, read-write works, but i don't
trust the filesystem format itself and would prefer to touch it as
little as possible.  in the few cases i need to change stuff on my vfat
partition, i remount it with mount -o 'remount,rw' /<pathname>
