judging from your other post about sound not working it looks like your kernel is missing some important bits.

Best to download another kernel or install the one from the CD again

Erm
 
You have to compile vfat support into the kernel before you can mount vfat filesystems. Btw, don't try and mount the floppy as vfat, just do: mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy.
