    try the folloying command:
    cat /proc/filesystems
    it will give you a list of all the file systems your kernel has support for, such as ext2 vfat ntfs. If the device you aretrying to mount has a filesystem that is not listed then that is your problem and you might have to load the appropriate modules into your kernel.
