Why is the floppy being mounted/unmounted at all? If you have
supermount, the point is quite simply that you do not have to
mount/unmount once the device is mounted; you are mounting the device
itself, not the medium.
If you don't want supermount in Mandrake, just remove the supermount
settings from /etc/fstab, unload the kernel module, and no student
should be able to mount w/ supermount anymore.
