I have the same problem here, on a "non-sun" sparc5.
(RDI powerlite laptop)
It seems to be a hardware problem, I never understand if it was because of a non-standard floppy drive or controler.

I heard that someone in Redhat team tried to resolve the problem, but it
was 2 years ago and I lost his name. Anyway, the problem still exists
so I guess he didn't find a solution.

I suppose the only solution is to use a bootable cdrom, or rarp for new install.
