Just get the *latest* supermount patches from
"ftp://linux.dcs.ed.ac.uk/pub/linux/kernel/supermount/"; 
and try again! ;-)

It works great here with diskettes containing a DOS filesystem. The
ext2 filesystem is still not supported and the mounting of CD-ROMs is
not very mature either. But for your DOS floppies it is just wonderful
not to have to fiddle with the mount command! But then sometimes the
mtools are even more useful because of support of long filenames and
the like.
