Taking a look to that file i saw "mount.vfat". I googled that word with
"2.6" and, magically i found people with the same problem (i promised i
googled a lot previously).

The problem seems to be in the "Default codepage for FAT". I had selected
437, but as said in the kern.log: "FAT: codepage cp437 not found".

So, that partition can't be mounted.

Well, now, i'll must to read a bit to find what is that of codepage, and
find the one that i need.

I'll write here to say if it was solved
