forget the filesystem.  Use the dd command.  all block
devices can also be accessed as char devices in Unix.

I'm assuming your files are small enough to fit on
a single floppy?

Write to floppy:

	tar czvf -  <path> | dd of=/dev/rfd0xx

Read from floppy:

	cd <path>
	dd if=/dev/rfd0xx | tar xzvf -

Note: You will need to determine the correct device
       names.  I have written this off the top of my head,
       and I haven't used a floppy in quite a while.
