I believe all you have to do is insert the floppy. You might have to right click the desktop, Disks menu, Floppy. This will set it up and put an icon on the desktop. Open both this and your home directory and drag. If you have a three button mouse (including a wheel mouse with a button wheel) middle button drag and you will get a Copy, Move, Link menu.
Or if you prefer a terminal, you could run these commands:
cp /mnt/floppy/* ~/some_directory
That moves the contents of the floppy drive to some_directory under your home, believe it or not.
