You can fire up a terminal and do 
$ gnome-mount -d /dev/fd0
or /dev/fdX where X is 0,1,2,... depending on how many floppies are in your computer.

Many computers nowadays do not come with floppies, but if yours has one, you can use gnome-mount to mount it and the entry will be created in /media/disk usually.
