If you mke2fs the floppy on GNU/Hurd, it'll be formatted for 720KB.

Are you using either gnumach 1.3 with serverboot or oskit-mach?
I've tried making boot floppies using gnumach 1.3 and without
serverboot, but the kernel panics when I hit the key at the prompt for
a root disk.  This is an old, known bug, it seems.  Boot floppies that
use either serverboot or oskit-mach don't have this problem, fwiw.
