      The Linux native file systems are ext2 and ext3.

      FAT32 (aka vfat) is a Windows native file system, so no, Linux does
      not require it.

      Linux can use FAT 32, though, but the file system doesn't permit
      Linux file permissions, so it is not a good choice for anything except
      a partition that will be accessed by both Linux and Windows, like on a
      dual boot system.
