Hi guys,
I changed the /etc/fstab to mount a windows partition auto on boot:
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat auto,user,ro 0 0

Then after a reboot i got a kernel message:
...can't locate mod nls ( 3 lines like this )

Anyone can explaind?

Yeah, er, FAT filesystems (and derivatives) use DOS codepages for correctly displaying chars in file/directory names (not data contents). Basically, you should have NLS support properly selected in your kernel config with ISO-8859-1 and CP437 selected wherever prompted (the option help should give you the info you need). This is all you need for Western European language support. Interestingly, you can force the codepage for the FAT driver e.g:
Code:
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat auto,user,ro,codepage=437 0 0

Are you only having the problem auto-mounting at boot? Can you mount the drive with mount after start-up?

(Just checking... did you compile ntfs and/or fat support?)
