Post vfat filesystem suport removed?
I followed the karmic installation instructions here. After the step "Remove generic image and sources that are not fully compatible with fit-PC2" I noticed that when I inserted a USB flash-drive formatted as FAT32, a popup was displayed: "unknown filesystem type 'vfat'".

Similar attempts to mount the fs from command like yield the same error:
% sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt
mount: unknown filesystem type 'vfat'

I did a clean re-install from scratch again after that, and confirmed that up until the apt-get purge, vfat was working.

Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

Maybe they really removed vfat support for what reason they may have had...Try loading the vfat module by hand:

sudo modprobe vfat
lsmod | grep vfat
