Well, I used the one listed in the main install doc: 
dd if=file of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 conv=sync ; sync
I even preserved the whitespace. Except, I replaced the word "file" with 
root.bin, of course. 

But, just for fun, I duplicated the command you sent me, and the output I get 
2880+0 records in
2880+0 records out
Then, nothing. I still hear it just spinning...I now have two "dd" processes 
that I can't kill. :-)
