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
