Ah. You might need to specify exactly what you're trying to mount.
# mount -t auto /dev/fd0 /floppy
The -t auto tells it to try and autodetect the filesystem. You can
also specify the filesystem like ext2 or vfat. man 8 mount has details.
If you want to be able to mount without being root, I recommend adding
this to your /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0 /floppy auto user,noauto,rw 0 0
Going from left to right, the line is saying to use the first floppy
drive, use the mount point /floppy, try to guess the filesystem type,
allow users to mount it in read-write mode, don't try to mount it on
boot (noauto). The first zero means don't fsck this device on boot,
the second means don't dump this in a backup.
