Apologies for what's doubtless a noob question, but...

I'm trying to install ZS on the hard drive I've partitioned and formatted the HD, have zeroshell.img.gz on the thumb drive, but when I try to mount it (mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/loop1) I get "unknown filesystem type 'vfat'". Tried two thumb drives, one's FAT16 and the other is FAT32. What am I doing wrong?

Having the same issue here as well. Would love to know the answer. I booted from a 2.0-RC2 CD and I can't get the USB drive to mount (same "vfat" error as you have).

The solution is to format the usb in EXT3.

Hi there is no support enabled in the kernel for FAT/FAT32 or NTFS
that has been taken out some while ago.

When I asked for it, I have been told to compile an new kernel myself.
But I never got it OK,
I have FAT support but iptables and ns_conn_track fail than.
Embarassed
SO Fulvio, please but FAT support back as an Module if possible.
