Most of the problems I've had installing OpenBSD on SPARC have been
down to either a bad floppy disk or a bad floppy drive.

Even verifying the disk doesn't guarantee that it's OK. The floppy
boot code seems very sensitive to bad disks.

Try using a brand new disk, straight from the box. Write the kernel
onto it and boot from it.

If that doesn't work, you can always try netbooting. It's not too
hard if you have another Unix machine.
