FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev hda1.
FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev hda5.

DETAILS

1. i have RE installed my windows OS with NTFS as the FS
2. linux box already active.. (before i reinstall windows.. it was in FAT32.. ) so it still recognized by VL

question how can i remove that error message from the boot?

hmm do i just need to place a comment on the fstab file where my windows partitions are mounted upon boot?
