Well I recently upgraded from kernel 2.6.3 to kernel 2.6.4. Then now I'm not able to mount vfat filesystems like floppy or windows partition.
When I try to mount them it says the following:
Could not mount device. The reported error was: mount: /dev/floppy/0 is not a valid block device Could not mount device. The reported error was: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/discs/disc0/part1, or too many mounted file systems
These are my corresponding fstab entry for both:
<file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> /dev/floppy/0 /mnt/fl vfat user,noauto,unhide 0 0 /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /mnt/win vfat rw,user,noauto,unhide,umask=022 0 0
Thanks in advance for all those whom read this and those that could brring some light in fixing this problem.
vfat doesn't work with the unhide option. Get rid of it.

It seems that I didn't knew that for the new kernel version "unhide" wasn't supported for vfat filesystems. So, that fixed my little problem.
