yes i use it and it works great .... the problem your having is your
not patching properly ..... The fat32 patch is gzipped so you need a
command like the following :-
gunzip -c fat32_patch-0_1_0.gz | patch -p0
The archived file needs to be in usr/src and it will then patch
properly ... To use it just select vfat in the kernel build options
and use as before ........

Dont worry as linux handles this well aswell ..... Best to type
/dosc/Pr and hit the tab key to fill in the blank and low and behold
your long file names will pop up :-))) You can type it manually but
who wants to do that >? after all it is'nt 95 were using :-)
