64M and up so I'm not sure that Fat12 would work well with that. We are
looking into the development kit from SanDisk. It looks pretty complete.

Keep me posted on the Fat12 and Fat16 progress.

Funny you should ask....

How big is the storage media?
A FAT12 filesystem (usually used on floppy disk sized media) was just 
contributed, you can get it in the contrib directory of the snapshots.
Checking it out is on my list of things to do, but the contributor said
it has 
been working fine for a few months with a solid state media of some
A floppy driver has also been contributed for testing.

Someone else is reportedly working on a FAT16 implementation, but it
won't be
ready for another couple of months.
