Booting from floppy

I have created a boot floppy with the
following commands(debian 2.2).

# dd if=/vmlinuz of=/dev/fd0 conv=sync
# rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/hda
# rdev -R /dev/fd0 1

The system starts to boot and then it hungs
with this message.

 Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs

What am I doing wrong?  Also, how do you
stop the boot process, pressing the <shift>
key has no effect when booting from floppy.
Thanks for your reply.
