yes i tried mount -t msdos /dev/hdb2 /mnt/hd
and when it finished retried to mount but got the same problem. BTW, when I
went back into rh80 i noticed that cat /proc/filessystems failed to reveal
the vfat and msdos again so I executed /sbin/modprobe vfat and msdos both to
get me back to where I was. So. the sequence was:
cat /proc/filesystems (no devices)
cat /proc/filesystems (devices exist)
mount -t vfat /dev/hdb2 /mnt/hd
NO LUCK..still getting fs type message.
