    what distro are you running?

    If you've made your own kernel for it, u will have to go into the kernel config and add FAT filesystems to the supported file system types.

    I don't make my own kernel.
    I setup RedHat10 (pedora core 2) on my PC.
    Harddisk of PC has two partitions(Ext3 and Fat32), I use EXT3 patition to setup LINUX. But in LINUX operating system, I can't MOUNT FAT32 partition.
    Could you help me?

    ok, in a shell, try mounting it with the automatic fs type, just dont specify one like:
    Code:
    mount /dev/hdd5 /home/fat32
    Just another question, i assume you are doing this as root, and also have the /home/fat32 folder created?
