The floppy has to be mounted at that point.
You have basicly two options:
Format the floppy as user, the floppy then belongs to you and you can
mount and write it. (You need to have write access to /dev/fd0)
Format the floppy as root, then mount as root, chown or chmod the
mountmoint as needed, umount and mount as user.
