If the overhead lights come on and the floor ones don't, there has to be an open in the wiring. Basically, a wire is disconnected or broken. Trace the wiring back from the lights themselves to see if you can find a problem. Also, use a test light to see if there is presently power to the light socket. You may even have a ground issue, so make sure the test like has a good ground.
