Not too sure if this will help, but here's my experience anyway.
I created a FAT partition, which incidentally has to be less than
512Mb, and mounted it under the /share directory with a similar
command. The only difference being that I mounted it from a
partition _NUMBER_, like /dev/hda2 or something. What your
command is trying to do is mount the entire Hard Drive under
Go into Linux fdisk, get the device name of the FAT partition,
(/dev/hda1, 2, 3 or 4) and try the mount command again.
I havent yet tried to mount a VFAT partition, simply because
I cant be f**ked recompiling the kernel to include it, and I
havent got enought HD space for another partition as it is. =)
