You've already recompiled the kernel, I take it? You're not running the
the stock kernel that comes w/RH6.2?

Are you sure you're loading the correct modules, and not modules created
against a previous version of the kernel? Or that the System.map is the
correct one for the running kernel & modules?

Assuming you have recompiled the kernel before have a look in
/usr/src/linux for the .config file. Grep it for CONFIG_FAT_FS and see
if you did actually compile in FAT support as a module or not. If you
didn't, then you're using an old module.
Other than this, compare the mtime of the System.map in the source tree
with the currently running one in /boot... maybe you forgot to update it?
