Making a floppy image from scratch

I am looking for a tool which can take a directory of files and a boot sector and assemble a floppy disk image (just like mkisofs).

Currently I have done this by:
-creating a filesystem on a real floppy
-installing GRUB on to it
-dding an image
-mounting the image with loopback

The problem is, I can't use the loopback method on computers other than my own (because 'only root can do that'). And I would prefer to generate a fresh image each time.

Any ideas appreciated.
