help with mounting on Minix?

I just installed Minix without a hitch and made a floppy directory at the root, and when I try to

mount /dev/fd0 /floppy

it gives me

mount: Can't mount /dev/fd0 on floppy: Invalid argument

Yes, I did this at the root! I'm not sure what the trouble is; it gives me the same message when I try to mount with the fd0 root folder the installation created. Litte help?!
