Probably most list denizens would skip your wordy dialog,
it would be better to summarize the problem yourself next

I just downloaded and verified the current root.bin works on an
oldworld, so there must be something going on with either the floppy
drive you're writing with or the one in the mac.  Maybe blow the dust

You could check to see what you have on the floppy matches 
the file with

diff -b root.bin /dev/floppy
