Sparc Install Failure

Im trying to install potato on a Sparc Ultra 1 using the rescue and root
floppies and then download the base over http.

It all goes well untill the writing of the boot floppy fails as does making
the hard disk bootable. The latter fails silentley.

Obviously the disk and floppy have been detected during the install since
partition and loading 'root.bin' are successfull.

Also selecting to eject the floopy from the Debian install menus fails 
as well.  

Looks like its forgotton about its devices at some point during the install.

Any ideas anyone.
