USB Floppy mount after linux rescue


I am trying to mount a usb floppy drive at the prompt after the linux rescue command during installation

I have issued

modprobe usb
modprobe usb-storage

I've also tried modprobe usb-uhci, modprobe usbcore
but i cannot mount the floppy using
mount /dev/sda /mnt/floppy

lsmod |grep usb
lists no module concerning usb.

Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks
