[Wolves] Ubuntu Dapper disk drive problem

I've never used the floppy drive with Ubuntu. But I've just set up two 
Ubuntu machines for my own children. My son stored some documents on the 
floppy of an old Red Hat linux. But when I had installed Ubuntu Dapper 
beta 6, there was no floppy drive. Tried the same with a spare machine 
at school and it can't mount the floppy drive. When I double click on 
the floppy icon (Floppy 1) it says "Unable to mount the selected floppy 
drive". More details gives 'could not determine the file system type and 
none was specified". If I right click the floppy icon and select 
Properties, it tells me that it has 3.6 G free space!

Any hints?

Thanks in anticipation.
