To mount the ntfs partition, tell it to use the entire slice, ie

As for the floppy, you can't mount it without there being a floppy disk in
the drive, which is usually not true after boot.  Floppies are usually
mounted only when you need to use it, then unmounted shortly afterwards.

Comment out /dev/fd0 and rather mount it manually when needed.
