This is what I've used.

# Make a 2.88 Meg image
echo "Making the 2.88 Meg image"
dd if=/dev/zero of=$TMP/livecd/floppyimage bs=1024 count=2880
mformat -t 80 -h 2 -s 36 x:
syslinux -s $TMP/livecd/floppyimage
mount -o loop -t msdos  $TMP/livecd/floppyimage $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $SCRIPTS/linux $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $TMP/livecd/syslinux.cfg $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $SCRIPTS/syslinux.dpy $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $SCRIPTS/syslinux.f1 $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $SCRIPTS/syslinux.f2 $TMP/livecd/floppymount
cp $TMP/livecd/rootfs.gz $TMP/livecd/floppymount
umount $TMP/livecd/floppyimage
cp $TMP/livecd/floppyimage $SRC/boot.image
