you should do mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /floppy. Replace vfat with whatever
format your floppy is in -- minix, ext2, msdos, etc.
There is a auto option you can place in /etc/fstab for the floppy device.
However for that to work you need to either a) compile support for the common
file systems into the kernel or b) auto load all of those modules at boot.
