2.0.34 and 2.0.35 kernels have fat32 support. Check out which kernel you are using. You may need to recompile the kernel to include support. Is that any help?

Check to see that fat32 support is in your kernel. If not you need to recompile it with support added. If support is already there you should be able to mount the partition with,
  'mount -t vfat DEVICE MOUNT_POINT'
