Linux can reed fat partitions, so there is no need for a program to
do it. When you configure the kernel, read the help for:

File systems  --->
  <M> DOS FAT fs support
  <M>   MSDOS fs support
  <M>     UMSDOS: Unix-like file system on top of standard MSDOS fs
  <M>   VFAT (Windows-95) fs support
  <M> NTFS file system support (read only)

Then read the 'Mount options for fat' section of "man mount".

If you are doing lots of work with fat floppies, you might like mtools
and fdutils.
