SOLVED Should be Simple: RH9 Error mounting FAT32 partition

Just installed Redhat 9.0. I previously had a RH 7.0 install and I was able to mount the drive easily with the same command. It is a 40 gig, FAT32 partition.

Here is the input and error:
input: mount -t vfat /dev/hdc /mnt/disk2
Error: FAT: bogus logical sector size 64543
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 16:00.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc, or too many mounted file systems

Anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks in Advance.

Shouldn't that be /dev/hdc1 or something, not just /dev/hdc?
