Default SystemImager problems

I have no idea as to what the hell is going on here. I have tried at least four different versions, four different computers, and two different flavours of Linux. All leads to the same result:

Using kernel: /usr/share/systemimager/boot/i386/standard/kernel
Using initrd: /usr/share/systemimager/boot/i386/standard/initrd.img

Creating DOS filesystem in /dev/fd0...
 >> mkdosfs -I /dev/fd0
mkdosfs 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
Using "syslinux" to make a bootable device...
 >> syslinux /dev/fd0
Creating temporary mount point...
Temporary mounting device /dev/fd0...
 >> sudo mount -t msdos -o umask=0007 -o uid=0  /dev/fd0 /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/fd0                  1424      1421         3 100% /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423
 >> sudo umount /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423 || true
umount: /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423: not mounted
 >> sudo umount /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423 || true
umount: /tmp/.autoinstalldiskette.9423: not found
error: couldn't copy required files onto the image!
I am running this either as root or using sudo.

Help would be appreciated, thanks.

What command are you using to create the diskette?
Which distribution are you using? What are the outputs of
df -h
ls -la /
