Try to install cupsys. You can do it in Synaptic.
Hope it helps.

I don't think so. These are probably windows drivers.

Do you use KDE or Gnome?
There are some helpful applets for it.
In unix-like systems you have to mount your drive first. There are at
least two ways of doing it. First is mentioned applet, and second is
simply typing `mount /floppy` in command line.
Then you can copy whatever you want to that floppy, and don't forget to
type `umount /floppy` because every drive has to be unmounted after use.
