FAT32 access from Redhat 8.0


Hello,

my problem is that I can't access the FAT32 partition of my Hard disk. Redhat 8 doesn't recognise it at all, while Mandrake 8, recognises it automatically. Does anyone know what happens, and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks a lot.

I haven't tried anything. I just remember Mandrake 8, when I had it installed, and the FAT32 partition was automatically mounted and I could use it after the installation without to do anything. Now, when I get in the /mnt directory, I only find my 2 cd-roms and my floppy, but not the fat32 partition. That's all.

1) mount -t vfat /dev/hd?? /mnt
2) cat /proc/mounts

and put the line showing on the mounted vfat partition in /ets/fstab

saying the same words in a slightly different order really isn't much use.
