Hrmph. Well, I guess we gotta tollerate that, then. 8)

Can you boot a 3.5 bsd.rd and see if you get the same result?
install 3.4 or whatever, boot it, download a new bsd.rd to /, then
get to openfirmware (command-option-o-f), then enter:
0> boot hd:,ofwboot /bsd.rd
If the same thing happens, we got a problem.
If this works, sounds like bad cdrom, bad file burned to a good cdrom,
etc (i.e., you have a problem 8).
While this sounds far fetched, I recently lost a bit more hair when a
new install on my iMac crashed VERY early in the boot process. System
wouldn't boot either bsd or bsd.rd. (this has an awful lot to do with
why I remember those Openfirmware commands. 8)
Turned out to be that my favorite ftp mirror had a corrupted copy of
BOTH bsd and bsd.rd on it. Pulled from a different mirror, cmp'd
them, and found a problem in both files. Go figure. (yes, FTP
operator was contacted and problem fixed). In that case, it turned
out cd35.iso was fine (that's how I booted), it was the files that it
installed that were dammaged.
