Not exactly - it's "type". There's several different programs that handle different types of file systems, and the type argument lets mount pick the right one.

As for "msdosfs", you're close enough. Microsoft DOS was usually known as "MS-DOS", so "the MS DOS filesystem" -> "msdosfs" ... I think. It's otherwise known as FAT. I'm not sure why FreeBSD uses the name it does; I'm sure there's some reason.

lol ah, yea, type make way more sense then transform :p lol, i was watching transformers.... i had robots on the brain :p

Will BSD load it the same way whether my stick is formated FAT or FAT32, or will i need to use like 'mswin9x' or something?

because my stick is formated FAT not FAT32

It will handle FAT32 fine, yes. (And FAT12, but that's less likely to be useful for you.)
