Um. Does it really say "/target/usr/bin/superformat /dev/fd0/ hd" ?
If so, that's the problem -- wrong command being run. It Shoudl be
/dev/fd0 not /dev/fd0/.
If not then run this manually on tty2:
/target/usr/bin/superformat /dev/fd0 hd
What does that say? If nothing, do
and what number does that say?

Maybe it's just a bad floppy -- with an error near the end of the disk?
