The device name is /dev/xsysace as you could see in the fdisk command 
line .
I have tried with both xsysace and xsysace1. The output is as follows:

root at local xilinx_sysace]#mount -t msdos /dev/xsysace1 /mnt/fat16
mount: special device /dev/xsysace1 does not exist
root at local xilinx_sysace]#
root at local xilinx_sysace]#

[root at local xilinx_sysace]# mount -t msdos /dev/xsysace /mnt/fat16
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/xsysace,
       or too many mounted file systems
[root at local xilinx_sysace]#

I could see the msdos and vfat support in "lsmod"
[root at local root]# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: GF
msdos                   8140   0  (autoclean)
vfat                   13132   0  (autoclean)
fat                    38744   0  (autoclean) [msdos vfat]
ace                    19828   0

Pl help me .
