As far as I know that's not possible.
If you use msdos formatted floppies you can however circumvent this by using the mtools.
(Check if they are installted with 'rpm -q mtools')
You can use them like the dos commands with a 'm'-prefix, like mdir A: for example. The floppy has not to be mounted for them.
