I have to build , load and compile a FAT fs module into the kernel.wat should i do?


I have to build a FAT fs and load it into the kernel and compile it.I know that kernels already have the FAT fs workin...but I need to build my own fs ..make modifications to existing FAT fs(at the least) ...Can someone help me with the sequence i should follow to build the fs,load it as a module,compile it and get it running....please

umm well im not sure, but mybe u should
1) build it (so u have somtheing to COMPILE!@!!)
2) compile it (so u can laod it)
and
3) load it and hope it works ,

u might also wnat to make teh modifications to the kernel source itself, that way u can compile it and laod it up (if its compiled as a module) jsut like anyother kernel module

Lol, maybe it's because I just woke up and because this is only the 3rd thread I've read so far. But this was quite an amusing reply. COFFEE TIME!!! Btw ramya, what do you mean build your own fs into the kernel?

Or did you mean build a fs into the kernel that is not fat but one of the other similar ones? If so, just find it in your config file or use make menuconfig and follow SciYro's inscructions. Or maybe I'm just misunderstanding.
