This is sort of a continuation from How to mount a .bin image file in linux but it morphed into a different problem altogether, so I figured I'd ask a new question with the relevant info rather than making a gigantic comment chain.
I have a drive, which I believe is fat32, that I cannot mount:
> file-sk: /dev/dm-2: x86 boot sector, code offset 0x58, OEM-ID "BSD 4.4", sectors/cluster 64, heads 255, sectors 3907024821 (volumes > 32 MB) , FAT (32 bit), sectors/FAT 476816, reserved3 0x1000000, reserved 0x1, serial number 0x5cb415f7, label: "SOURCE-PSE " DOS executable (COM), boot code –
When I try to mount, it gives the filesystem/badblock error, and this is the dmesg
> mount -o ro -t vfat /dev/dm-2 /mnt/bsp2 mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/loop1p1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so > dmesg | tail [155824.015650] FAT: IO charset iso8859-1 not found
User osgx led me down the path that the reason that iso isn't found, is because it's not loaded in the kernel. My kernal config is here: http://pastebin.com/j7iS7RF3
I listed the relevant mods I could find, and modprobed all of them.

The important one I believed to me isofs. But when I run modinfo on it, it says it's just iso9660. Since I'm assuming I need iso8559-1 (or 7), I guess it's not available? It's clearly listed in the kernel config as
m which I thought it meant it would install as a module, but I'm not seeing those iso types available. Any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!
