That may not work for him. If he's actually using
Slackware 2.3, the kernel version was probably 1.2.8. Unless
he's recompiled a newer version of the kernel, or patched the
1.2.8 kernel somehow and recompiled, replacing "msdos" in
fstab with "vfat" will fail. VFAT support wasn't integrated
into the kernel source until late in the 1.3.x series.
