could it be the byte order ? and the way openbsd address it?  anyway openbsd
is great in
wintel boxes but sometimes not optimal on spacs and others.   I like my open
bsd toys.

I tried jumpstarting an Ultra2 with Solaris 9 off an Ultra5 running
OpenBSD once, and I absolutely could not make it work.  It would always,
