The fiasco kernel and roottask I build are too large to put in the floppy.

I found the two files in drops-demo-floppydisk-current.img are quite small.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 166060 2005-08-15 15:53 fiasco
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  61545 2005-08-15 15:41 roottask
But the ones I build are so large that there are on enough space for them in
the floppy.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 zhengda zhengda 639K 2006-09-16 00:25 bin/x86_586/l4v2/roottask
-rwxr-xr-x 1 zhengda zhengda 358K 2006-09-16 00:08
I got fiasco from CVS, and followed the steps showed in
I want to create a hard disk image, and then there will be enough space.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to create a hard disk image.
So does anyone have some ideas?
Thank you.
