This is not a Mac, so floppies (and other removable media) are not
mounted into your desktop or home directory, but into /media. There is
only an icon appearing on you desktop which you can double click for
accessing the files on your disk. So if you are looking for the contents
of your floppy disk in an open or save dialogue, you have to browse to
OOo does not use the new gnome open dialogue, but in applications using
it you will find list of available volumes on the left where you can
select your floppy disk quite easily.
