Mounting Windows partitions on Solaris x86

I have a problem mounting a Windows 95 partition on my Solaris x86 v2.6 OS.  I have read through and performed the content as described in the man pages mount, mount_pcfs, and pcfs.  When I try to mount a Windows partition, I get the response "partition is not a DOS partition".  Is there something that I need to do before I use the mount -F pcfs command or is it something that I did not do when I installed the system?  Both operating systems reside on the same disk (ide).

HI....
What type of fs is your DOS partition???
You can only do this if you have a FAT16 partition.

I have my windows setup using FAT32.  This may explain the problem.  I will try changing part of my Windows system to use FAT16 instead and give it a try.  Thanks.
