floppy and mouse

Recently  I installed Hurd from Debian mini-iso. It cannot support floppy
disks. When I mount a floppy disk (settrans -cga /floppy /hurd/ext2fs
(or fatfs) /dev/fd0) it either hangs or types error. If  I format the
floppy on other system (on HURD there is no fdformat) and make ext2 it tell     
that block size is not equal memory page size as I understand. When filesystem  
of diskette is fat system mounts the diskette but if I try to see its content 
(ls /floppy) ,
the system hangs. What does it mean?

Could anyone tell me how can I install mouse on hurd? I have USB mouse
with 3 buttons. I can replace it with mouse on com1 port if it does
not supported. In Linux there is a gpm programme for mise but on hurd
there was not gpm. How mouse is supported on hurd?
