It's hard to say if it's correct without knowing what your floppy device is
like, but folders won't exist until the corresponding /dev node is created
- ie, if you don't have a permanently attached floppy drive you won't
always have a folder in /media.

Do you have an entry for the floppy in /etc/fstab?  If so, I'd remove it...
