charset ISO8859-1 not found:Error during mounting

Hello Frens

I build and install 2.6.12..4 kernel on my mandrake 10 kernel
Everything is working fine except when I try to mount my FAT partition on which Window XP installed.

At the time of mounting following error will come

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda6,
or too many mounted file systems
where sda6 is my FAT32 partition

when i try to see my error through tail command
the following lines will come

"charset ISO8859-1 not found"

when i check my menuconfig file i see that i didn't select this native file support during kernel building.

so if there is any way with which i will install this file system or able to do mount without rebuilding the kernel.

this is my /etc/fstab file

/dev/sda7 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/sda9 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
#/dev/sda6 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/sda6 /mnt/win_e vfat defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda8 swap swap defaults 0 0

sda1 and sda5 are NTFS partitions and similar error will come in their cases also.

the kernel is one of those things you always need to do over at least once
when you try a new one

If there is no way with which I can deal with this problem......without rebilding the complete kernel as everything else is working absolutely fine......
