I can mount but cannot read a WIN95 FAT32 partition

I can mount the Win95 FAT32 partition and use 'df' to check the usage of it. But I cannot read it. Each time I type 'ls' and return, the cursor jumps to the beginning of the next line and stays there without any response. I find the process of 'ls' with 'ps' but I cannot kill it even under root. Then when I shutdown the computer, it reports that several partitions (/usr, /dosd, /dev/pts, etc) are busy. I did a new installation of FC3 and reformatted the partition (under WinXP), the problem remains. Any one can help me?
