You should use seek=1 instead of count=1 in the second "dd".

I too get this if I try to access my main partitions with GRUB.
My BIOS is too old, I guess.  I have worked around it by making a
separate 64MB /boot partition at the beginning of the disk and
putting gnumach and serverboot there.  servers.boot can be in the
main Hurd partition since it's loaded with GNUmach's drivers.

Do you mean the menu?  That appears automatically if you have
defined its contents in the config file (menu.lst).

I guess your floppy doesn't contain a file system.

You can make a GRUB boot floppy with a file system.  Just follow
the hard-disk installation instructions but use (fd0) as the
target device.
