       --device <devicefile>
              The  boot  image  is  created on <devicefile>fR. If
              --device is not specified, /dev/fd0 is used.

Try running mkbootdisk without the --device option.

As for the fdformat errors, you might be formatting the wrong device.  If
you recently bought your floppies, they will most likely be 1.44M, not
360K.  Try this:

fdformat /dev/fd0H1440

to me more specific.  fdformat's man page states it will try to 
auto-detect the floppy's parameters using setfdprm, which in turn reads 
from the file /etc/fdprm , but you should be more specific to see if that 
solves your problem.  Open /etc/fdprm to see if the settings are correct.
