MINIX File System On Floppy ?

Does anyone know what the command is to mount a floppy with a MINIX file system? I havent heard of this kind of fs before.

mount -t auto /dev/floppy /mnt/floppy (replace /dev/floppy and /mnt/floppy with appropriate substitutions for your system.) The problem you will encounter is that Minix is an *old* FS type, and most modern Linux Kernels are not compiled with support for it. You will most likely have to compile a linux Kernel with Minix FS support (prefferably in a module) then load the module (modprobe minix should do the trick, just try it now and see if you get an errror).
