problem booting with diskette on sun sparcstation 5 170mhz



Hi!

INTRODUCTION: 
- I created a boot diskette with one of my sparc with OpenBSD 3.5 (dd if=floppy35.fs of=/dev/rfd0c bs=36b)
- I installed OpenBSD 3.5 with that diskette (boot and ftp install) for a sparcstation 5 85,hz and sparcclassic, everything is fine. Because of that, i ordered my 3.6 cd's set (not received yet) to encourage the best OS for SUN computer (solaris is my second choice ;) )

BUG:
I try to boot the same diskette on a sparcstation 5 170mhz (turbosparc instead of microsparc) with boot floppy and boot floppy bsd and i have this problem (see ERROR OUTPUT). I don't find any info on internet about this problem. I know i can wait for my CD set's but i want to install OpenBSD on that computer soon. I know it is compatible, and i know everything will be ok with CD's

Thanks a lot!
