[ale] Odd Netscape Errors, Possible Joiliet (sp?) Problem?

  Since I enabled fat32 on my system so that I could use my 4Gig drive as
a single drive I get the following error:

"Can't open Inbox.  You may not have permission to write to this file.
 Check the permissions and try again."

First, Where is the Inbox:
  {0}:moat:/home/nomad>ls -la
  lrwxrwxrwx   1 nomad    users          37 Sep 13 18:04 Mail -> /scsi2/apps/netscape/Users/nomad/Mail

Second, What is the condition of that mounted file system:
  {0}:moat:/>ls -la
  drwxrwxrwx   6 root     root        16384 Dec 31  1969 scsi2

Third, How is it mounted:
  /dev/sdb1 on /scsi2 type vfat (rw,umask=000)

Fourth, What is the condition of the Inbox?
  {0}:dogbert:/scsi2/apps/netscape/Users/nomad/Mail>ls -la Inbox
  -rwxrwxrwx   1 root     root      1398133 Nov 22 21:04 Inbox

As you can see, the actual Inbox is World Readable and World Writeable.
I tried this as root and I get the same problem.  Anyone have any ideas?
Anything I've missed?
