OpenBSD installation



Okay, I installed OpenBSD (on antoher box) but when i try to boot, it gives the error "bad magic" and hangs. Someone said something about using OS-BS, but I tried it and it just went thro the same porcess, ending up with the same error. I can boot only
by doing boot -a with the install floppy. 

I tried booting like that and then doing : /usr/mdec/installboot /boot /usr/mdec/biosboot wd0 but just got the same error again.


The system spec:

PII 400Mhz
8GB IDE HD
128MB RAM
Award Modular BIOS

Can anyone help please?
