This could be because you don't have vfat support in your kernel or the
mountpoint /tmp/floppy doesn't exist. However, each of these failures have
their own proper error messages, so . . .

Ain't necessarily so. If you can mount a floppy, you should be able to
export it via nbd. But not being able to mount it e.g. because of lack of
vfat support, doesn't mean that you won't be able to export it through nbd.
