On my system, when I mount my FAT32 drive an icon is automatically
placed on the desktop. Is the partition you're trying to mount
listed in /etc/fstab? Mine looks like this:

/dev/hda1	/mnt/C	vfat    noauto,owner,users 0 0

The "users" in the above line allows me to mount it when I'm
not logged in as root. When I log into GNOME, I just open up
"computer," right-click on C and click "mount volume". Alternatively
you can go to the GNOME menu under System Tools -> Disk Management
and mount it there. It's gotta be in /etc/fstab first, though. 

Hope this helps. (I'm not that smart, I just learned this from
reading the list)
