deleted fat32, added linux, formated ext3 ... mount detects as fat and I get FS-panic



Hi... 

I decided to delete my fat32 partition (sda1, with win2k on it).
I did that with fdisk and added a linux partition, then formated it with "mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sda1" ...
Everything seemed to work fine... I can even mount it with "mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt" ... but there seem to be some fat32 rubbish left because when I do "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" it seems to detect the partition as fat32 and gives this error:

FAT: Did not find valid FSINFO signature.
Found signature1 0x0 signature2 0x0 sector=1.
Directory 1: bad FAT

Filesystem panic (dev 08:01).
  FAT error

I've also tried deleting the partition again and creating it with cfdisk and format it again.. but there is no difference..

I'm running Debian 3.0 (testing/woody) so all programs (mkfs.ext3, fdisk, cfdisk) should be fairly close to the latest version released, and the kernel is 2.4.18-pre7aa2. (apt-get dist-upgraded as late as yesterday).

Would be thankful for any information about how to get rid of this annoying mount auto-detection error.
