Floppy Handling??

I am sorry for repeating this mail but I can't help it. You can know the
severity of the prob by this. I tried to look in good books but failed to
get the answer.

Hi Guys,

This is about floppy handling. I have formatted a floppy using fdformat
This is a low level format and has no file system.
Now how do I mount this floppy?
I tried to mount it with a ext2 file type but could'nt. I used mount -t ext2
/dev/fd0H1440 /mnt/floppy
Okay and how do I further copy information on it (if it is something special
other that cp, cpio..) and extract info from it
And finally how do you make a bootable floppy disk??

Thanx for the help in advance.

Thanx for the networking help by Vikas.
