The hurdish way to "mount" devices is to attach a translator to a node,
using the settrans command. For a floppy, it would look like:

settrans -cga /mnt/floppy /hurd/fatfs /dev/fd0

You can have the help of settrans by doing settrans --help

All translators are "normal" programs, so you should be able to have
help of themselves too (/hurd/fatfs --help for example).
