I'm just wondering if I could use a VFAT file system with a Shark Drive
under Linux (2.2.10). It's because I finnaly got my modem to work with
Linux and now I want to remove M$ Windoze...Of couse I have backups of
my MP3s on my Shark Drive but I backed'em with Windoze 95 so there are
in a VFAT file system. (Well, I guess)

Here's what I got :
insmod paride --> Ok
insmod epat --> Ok
insmod pd --> Oups!

Here's the log :

pd: pd version 1.05, major 45, cluster 64, nice 0
pda: Sharing parport0 at 0x3bc
pda: epat 1.01, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x3bc, mode 1 (5/3), delay 1
pda: AVATAR AR2250, master, 489472 blocks [239M], (956/16/32),
removable media
pda: unknown partition table

So I guess that I couldn't use a Shark Drive that has a VFAT file system
on it, it is true ? Do I'll have to re-format it with an EXT2 file

Somebody has a clue ? ( Grant I'm sure that you know :P )
