Ok, straight up umount it. Make sure it is umounted. Like so:
umount /mnt/e

Then check to see if it's umounted:
mount

If it is, cool. Now mount it:
mount /mnt/e

And see if that works.

It's been rumored that RH8 doesn't allow writing to fat32 even with a umask that allows writing. I have a hard time believing that, however, it does seem to be a common problem.

Anyway, yeah, a umask=000 is going to be the one you want to allow EVERYONE ON EARTH full and complete access to that partition.

Post up the /etc/fstab entry you created so we can see how it looks.

Cool
