mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
       or too many mounted file systems

This is in /var/log/messages:
Aug 30 19:16:50 localhost kernel: FAT: invalid first entry of FAT 
(0xffffff8 != 0x1)
Aug 30 19:16:50 localhost kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem 
on dev hda1.

So it thinks it's not a valid FAT system. It seems to work okay in 
Windows... is there a possibility that there are different kinds of FAT32?
