    Apologies for what’s doubtless a noob question, but…

    I’m trying to install ZS on the hard drive I’ve partitioned and formatted the HD, have zeroshell.img.gz on the thumb drive, but when I try to mount it (mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/loop1) I get “unknown filesystem type ‘vfat'”. Tried two thumb drives, one’s FAT16 and the other is FAT32. What am I doing wrong?

    Having the same issue here as well. Would love to know the answer. I booted from a 2.0-RC2 CD and I can’t get the USB drive to mount (same “vfat” error as you have).

    I also am trying to install on the hard disk Zeroshell and try to mount the usb stick I get the error “unknown filesystem type ‘vfat’.” Does anyone know how to fix it?.

    thanks

    The solution is to format the usb in EXT3.
