what exactly did you do ??
did you use fdformat or superformat ??
- if not, that is why your *.img files doesnt work
- if you did.. try a different floppy ... preferrably
a good floppy with zero defects, as dd will require
a zero-defect floppy to write properly since there;s
no fs to skip around an bad blocks
after those low level format, than you can do the
dd if=root.img of=/dev/fd0 data=sync
