About FAT32

I heard that Linux Redhat is not able to view files on FAT 32 on contrary that Mandrake is able to view files on FAT32

I have Linux Mandrake 9.2 and i can view files in FAT32 format fine but i want to install Redhat and so is that true tht it is not able to view file in FAT32????

Thanks in advance

No - Red Hat 9 is able to read and write to fat32. In fact, any Linux system with a 2.4.xx kernel and the appropriate mount point should be able to do it.

the mount point is a directory to mount that partition
normally made in /mnt
if you want to viewfat32 files
you need to make directory at any where
preferablly on /dev
now the partion you want to view should be known to you
as hda1 the primary master first partition
and so on
then on console write the command
mount /dev/hdaX /mnt/XXXX
here you have now the partition mounted on /mnt/XXXX
where XXXX is the directory name u made
this will temp mount ur partition
for permanently mount u need to edit fstab
