Re: Fat is supported in linux, right?

You should have no trouble mounting a fat drive from linux provided it's
supported by your kernel. If your using  a fairly new one, 
 2.2.XX or newer, it should be in there.

Win95 is on hda1 on my box, I mount it with the following:

mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/win

Good luck,
