Question about mounting a FAT32 partition

Version of Linux is Red Hat 7.3

I already have the latest kernel installed.

I am trying to mount a Logical FAT32 partition in Linux.

In linux, I try to type

mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 /mnt/windows (hda2 is my FAT32 partition)

and I get

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2,
or too many mounted file systems
(aren't you trying to mount an extended partition,
instead of some logical partition inside?)
