FAT32 problems

I did the patch as given in the FAT32 document on the internet (it is pretty popular all search goes to it) and recompiled the kernel with the same commands as given in it. But the kernel is not mounting my hda1 by the command
mount -t msdos /dev/hda1 /dos
obviously dos exists and the error message is bad superblock.

why don't you use a kernel > 2.0.34, for which you don't need any patch?

OK now I know what the problem is
It was because lilo had the pointer to /boot/somefile...
and when I copied /vmlinuz to /boot/somefile...
It worked.
So whoever is to give the fastest response
I would give him 20 points.
