Hey there!
I have a flash executable file that I want to put onto floppies. If I make all the floppies using my Mac, will PC people be able to use the disks without problems?

Not necessarily... if you're making an exe from a Mac, it might not work at all. It should work, but you never know until you try. And unless you use a PC formatted disk, the PC won't be able to read it anyway.

you should be able to make an EXE on a make and save it on a PC disk, but make sure that you save the files with the .exe extensiono or the PC will add a .bin or something else and will not be able to read your program...
