I am one of those poor souls who still uses 3.5 inch floppies. Sad, but true.

The first floppy is designated as /dev/fd0. Check for that. If present mount from that.
Might be a line in /etc/fstab for for /dev/fd0 and if so use the command ' mount /dev/fd0 '
As far as the icon depends maybe on the gui being used.
