Floptical Drive

I've connected my Indy floptical drive under Linux for the first time, and
the kernel accurately detects and sizes it (when a diskette is in).  Since
I've never had the opportunity to actually purchase a 21 M floptical
diskette, the default media are IBM format dikettes.  When I try to add
msdos or vfat filesystem support to the kernel (latest CVS) I get the
following failure:
