You should be able to control this by adding the "noexec" or "exec" 
option to the floppy entry in your /etc/fstab file:

  /dev/fd0  /floppy  auto   noauto,user,noexec 0   0

Or from the command line (as root) :

  umount /floppy
  mount -o noexec /floppy
  ls /floppy 
  umount /floppy
  mount -o exec /floppy
  ls /floppy
