first you have to have a directory to mount to. Lets just make a test directory.
mkdr testmount.
Then to mount the floppy.
mount /dev/fd0 /testmount (did you put the floppy in the drive :D?)
then to unmount it, type unmount /dev/fd0
to mount a hard disk, say drive C in windows, mount /dev/hda1 /testmount
where one is the number of the partions.

Of course, look up man mount for the details :).

why not mount /mnt/cdrom/ or mount /mnt/floppy/ ?

Tomers  was asking for the complete syntax, and he seems to be having some problems with the solution you proposed. Make a general solution, since /mnt/* are merely mount points, nothing special about them.
