If the disk is DOS formatted then it should be readable by a Windows machine like was stated in the prior post from Windows. If it is ext2 then use the following.
If you are booting a Slack CD and able to login. Then you need to mount the floppy disk first, prior to searching for any files. Try,
if disk is ext2 format then;
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt
if disk is DOS formatted then;
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt
If it complains about the mount point /mnt does not exist then;
and repeat the above.
You should then be able to "ls -l /mnt" and see the files and/or directories on the disk. Not sure about what you want to do with them though. So I am not able to help much from here. However, if the disk still remains unreadable then it is probably damaged or a bad floppy disk drive.
