Subjectpartions on floppy

Ok, I made a parition on floppy, now do I access it?

Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/fd0: 2 heads, 18 sectors, 80 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 36 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/fd0p1 1 80 1431 83 Linux

I did
mknod /dev/fd0p1 b 2 1


However, neither 'mkswap' nor 'mke2fs' seems to work on '/dev/fd0p1'


(why I try to do this? I'm trying empirically verify if 'mkswap' will
check for partion type (ie is this '82') before mkswap-ing it. IMHO, it
shouldl.... )
