Mount is used to associate a device to a directory. When you want to access the device you access it through the mounted directory.
Usually, a floppy drive is known as the device /dev/fd0 so you can issue the following command to mount to a directory called /floppy.
mount -t fat /dev/fd0 /floppy
Since the floppy drive is now associated with /floppy you just have to copy to the directory to put a file on the floppy. Basically any operation on the mounted directory affects the device associated with it.
To unmount you can use the umount command and specify either the device or the directory to unmount.
ie: umount /dev/fd0 or umount /floppy
