should be able to mount it manually.
mkdir /mnt/sda1; mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 -t vfat
Or insert into /etc/fstab and it will be mounted on reboot.
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat defaults 0 0
No clue why it isn't auto-mounted on-demand. The old fstab-sync mechanism has not been used since Fedora 4 but it still works...
If you want to mess around with mounting things the new way, try man automount; man auto.master and see where that leads...
