How do I mount my FAT32 HD in Linux? Everytime I use the mount command, it says FAT32 not supported by Kernel?

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cdrive

should work just fine..
replace /dev/hda1 with your harddisk device
replace /mnt/cdrive with whichever directory you want to mount it in

If it doesn't detect the filesystem automatically try mentioning explicitly

mount /dev/hda1 -t vfat /mnt/cdrive

you use 'vfat' to mount FAT32 partitions.

If you want it to mount at boot everytime, make the entries in
/etc/fstab

read man mount for more info

I figure that you mistyped that and meant

-t vfat

no need for the 32 :)

Though it usually autodetects FAT32 partitions just fine.. try just

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cdrive
