i had hard time  in that problem, but it was linux..

in installing fat32 win95(OSR2), it warned  other system( not support
fat32 ) can not access

fat32..

in my guessing, it was impossible ...

in addition to fdisk can not recognize that file system..

then.... have a good day..

Yes, you can.
        1 - Buy Partition Magic or System Commander
        2 - Follow those instructions - those programs allow you to select FAT32
or FAT for each partition.  You must choose FAT for the FreeBSD partition,
but you are free to choose FAT32 for your WIN95 partition(s)

One note; I had to set up two WIN95 partitions: one near the "front" of the
disk that was small enough to allow the FreeBSD partition to be in the
required place, and the second (large) one at the "back of the disk.  Read
the Installation manual for FreeBSD VERY carefully, and back everything up
first (of course).

Does anyone know if it can be done easier?

1. FAT32 and Linux 2.0.35: mounting the FAT32 partition

Hello,

I have just reinstalled win95 on a FAT32 partition and
upgraded my kernel to 2.0.35 so that (hopefully) I will
be able to see my dos partiton even though it uses FAT32
(aka "enable lrge disk support").

I have the following /etc/fstab file:

/dev/hda5               /                       ext2    defaults        1 1
/dev/hda8               /home                   ext2    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda6               /usr/local              ext2    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda7               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             ext2    noauto          0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660 noauto,ro       0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0

... and my dos partiton is on /dev/hda1 and is supposed to be mounted under the /msdos directory
which is already there (I created it through RedHat's Disk Druid (aka "fdisk with GUI") when I was
installing up Linux).

Here's the output of df:


Filesystem         1024-blocks  Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/hda5             599043  524089    44010     92%   /
/dev/hda8              50717    8856    39242     18%   /home
/dev/hda6             247871   35465   199606     15%   /usr/local

The fat32 filesystem does not show (the /msdos directory doesin't either).
/msdos should be mounted on (? /dev/hda9) and should get mounted at boot time?

Any suggestions?

TIA,

Neil Zanella
