No need to mount it read-only; Linux can read and write FAT32 without
problems and has been able to for a long time. You *can* mount it
read-only by adding a "-o ro" to the end of that command line, or by
modifying /etc/fstab so that "ro" is in the options field for that
mountpoint. man fstab and man mount for more details.
