Is it me, or are the disks not cool? (fwd)

I get the same thing on my IPX, but if I take the same disks and try them
in an older Sparc 1 or 1+ they work just fine. Could this be a ROM version
thing? I'm sure the ROM versions in the 1/1+ is 1.x_something but the IPX
is 2.4. I have no trouble booting a rescue disk set on the IPX with serial
console which I downloaded from vger some weeks ago...
