I've just come across a similar problem. I can mount the partition fine but when I look in a directory that has 300+ sub directories konqueror locks up, this used to be perfectly viewable in fedora core 1's version of kde. it can be listed and edited fine from the command line though so there is no problem with linux its self. So if anyone has any comments !!
To answer the first persons question have you got your /etc/fstab file set up correctly
/dev/hda6 /media/e vfat suid,uid=0,dev,umask=000,gid=0,exec 0 0
then just run mount -a
The mask makes everyone have access to everything so may be kinda bad in terms of security, but good for getting stuff to work.
The boot loader can be changed by running system-config-boot if you don't have it installed you can just edit the /boot/grub.conf file
