Making a floppy fails?

The makefile seems to imply that 'cat floppyboot.bin eepro.rom >fd0'
is the recipe to create a boot floppy with my desired boot.  I realize 
that the eepro's that I have are capable of booting, but I've given up 
on that for the momment --- things that appear to support this don't
support a FreeBSD kernel.

Anyways... I have catted together floppyboot.bin and eepro.rom into a
single image.  I have then tried both cat and dd to put them on a
floppy.  When this floppy is booted, it continuously cycles some hex
(looks like address) data.

Any clues on offer?
