Mandrake 9.0 recognize's FAT32 as NTFS

I converted one of my partitions from NTFS to FAT32, so i can write to that partition too.
And i converted it with Partition Magic, in Win XP of course.

And now my problem is that linux won't recognize that partition at all.
Even i try to 'ls' in /mnt/nt, where that NTFS used to be, isn't working anymore.

So what do i need to do, to get my linux understand that it's FAT, not NTFS anymore?

ps. I'm using Mandrake 9.0

Ok, i solved the problem.
I went to linuxconf, and there i could easily change the type of partition.

Sorry for worthless thread..
