i think your setup sounds like it's pretty close to working.
don't create two openbsd MBR partitions, that makes things more confusing.
but you can create a new root partition within the existing disklabel.
the openbsd bootloader is capable of booting off a different partition.
see also the -a option in man boot.  that should work.
