Check the PROM variables "ttya-ignore-cd" and "ttyb-ignore-cd". Both
should be "true".

Sorry to reply to my own post but I have found the problem, I just
wondered if anyone else had seen this before.
I tried booting with -v and it seemed to hang after it found the serial
ports. I dug out a screen and keyboard and it boots fine. The machine
works fine with bsd. I suppose it could be a dodgy serial port. Once
it's installed i'll see if will boot up without anything plugged in.
