Floppy Images

I'm following these instructions:

My floppy wasn't empty. Maybe I should reformat it or deformat it first? If so, how?

Here's what I did with no affect to the floppy:

[root@ user]# dd if=/mnt/cdrom/images/hd_grub.img of=/dev/fd0 bs=512
333+1 records in
333+1 records out
[root@ user]#

A normal 1.44M floppy image would say 2880 not 333. Are you sure the hd_grub.img is a bootable floppy image? I've never used that one.
