it sounds like you need the "-t" option when you mount the floppy.
What type of filesystem is the floppy formatted? Perhaps "msdos"
or "ext2".

If the floppy is msdos format the mount command should be:
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /floppy

just replace the parameter for the "-t" option with the appropriate
filesystem type.

Let me know how it goes.
