Same results here. Reads the floppy for maybe a second and spits it out. Tried 
it with two floppy discs, same result (wrote with dd and cmp to be sure, and 
got no errors). After that I wrote the daily build boot.img from 16-april on 
these two disks, booted them both and both worked.
So the discs are ok, the contents is not. 

I'll happyly test another image ;)
