[Soekris NET4501] Boot problem



Hi,

I'm trying to install OpenBSD 3.6 on my SanDisk 128MB Flashcard for use in
the Soekris 4501. But for some strange reason the booting doesn't
work. This is what I have done:

OpenBSD machine:

- dd if=/dev/zero of=system128.img bs=1024k count=128
- vnconfig svnd0 system128.img
- fdisk -c 980 -h 8 -s 32 -i svnd0
- disklabel -E svnd0
  a a = 250847
  a b = 1
- newfs /dev/rsvnd0a
- mount /dev/svnd0a /mnt
- Copy files and NET4501 bsd kernel
- cd /mnt/usr/mdec; cp boot /mnt
- cd /mnt/usr/mdec; ./installboot -v boot /usr/mdec/biosboot svnd0
- umount /mnt/
- vnconfig -u svnd0

Windows:
- dd if=s:\system128.img of=\\.\g: bs=1M

When I boot the Soekris with the CompactFlash card it only gives the
follwing messages and doesn't boot!:

Using drive 0, partition 3
Using drive 0, partition 3
Using drive 0, partition 3
Using drive 0, partition 3

Hopefully somebody can help me.
Already tried flashdist and OpenSoekris, cleaning the MBR doesn't help.

Thanks for your time!
