The floppy needs to be in the drive before you issue the mount command and not taken out until you issue the umount command.
You may need to be the root user to mount the floppy.
You can use the "su" command if that is so.
You should read man autofs,automount,auto.master and search the automount web site by google before(searching automount you can find an useful tutorial at the first site google finds).
If you need something more you can take a look to Knoppix:there it's all configured similarly to windoze
