[tlug] fdformat

Tell me how to format an ext2 filesystem on a floppy disk. I tried formatting as shown below but couldn't mount /dev/fd0. Why not? It slipped from my memory though I did it well....
fdformat /dev/fd0h1440
( ...... omitted ......)
Formatting . . .  done
Verifying . . . done
oops:~# mount /dev/fd0h1440 /mnt
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
oops:~# mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt
mount: wrong fs type. bad option,bad superblock on /dev/fd0,
           or too many mounted file systems
