You put the floppy in the floppy drive, then you use the mount command
under Linux.
Type mount -? to see the help, there's a way to specify the system, then
select DOS (if your floppy is dos formated).
After that just use cp.

If you have boot Linux without a floppy in the drive, then before the
mount you have to create the mount point (ie : 'mkdir /floppy').

Another way if you've got a lot of floppy, just copy them on a dos
partition, then configure Linux to have access to DOS partition...
