How does Linux deal with Inodes on FAT filesystem?

Hi,

the FAT filesystem is a design from Microsoft and the whole Windows Universe. As you probably know, FAT does not support Indos like ext3 or other UNIX/LINUX filesystem. The Linux kernel provide a FAT filesystem driver but I've problems to understand the code and need help for answering the following questions:
  • Inodes must be generated on the fly by file access. When exactly does this happened?
  • How Linux does Linux generate the Inodes?
  • How does the kernel FAT driver manage the file descriptors?

Thank you very much for your help.
