What software can I get and how can I install it for viewing Fat32 partions on my computer when in Red Hat Linux 4.2 Kernel 2.0.30?
Detailed instructions would be greatly appreciated, I'm not a professional programmer and can not write my own make scripts or even edit them.
Thanks!

Basically, the linux kernel 2.0.30 include the support of the
win95 file system ( they call it vfat )
Try to recompile your kernel and enable it in kernel option!

you can find the man page that tell you how to make a new
kernel from red-hot web site!

This has full information on FAT32 support under linux, plus patched utilities to deal with FAT32 partitions, and a kernel patch to add FAT32 to the supported filesystems.
