"boot floppy" problems come up on this list often, check the archives;
this problem may be the same as one other people frequently report
that is a problem with the hardware.

I don't know if this will work, but you could try using dd under
Solaris (or Linux, for that matter) to copy the floppy to a disk
slice, then boot off that:

# dd if=resc1440.bin of=/dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5 (or whatever)
# halt
type  'go' to resume
ok boot disk:e

Hope that helps.
