This problem started when I installed linux and I tried to create a boot disk during installation. The system could not read the floppy.
I have tried to mount the floppy using GUI (right mouse click -> mount -> floppy) but it still did not work.
I will try the other command and let u know.
I recently had a similar problem, trying to mount my cd-rom drive (/dev/cdrom). So I looked around in the /dev directory on to find that /dev/cdrom wasn't there! So I looked and messed around a little more to find it directed to /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd.
Don't know if it can help you, but thought it was quite odd...until I thought about the fact that it was on a ThinkPad laptop which has cold-swap drives.
