Well, the problem here is that you are tring to copy the files from the floppy onto the floppy.
Instead of putting stage1 and stage2 on that command line, try putting /boot/grub/stage1 and /boot/grub/stage2.
After you try again, please post all the commands you typed in and all their output. Simply copy and paste that in, and we can make sure everything is going as it should.
