I'm guessing that your boot-device is not the disk with the lowest
SCSI id on the SCSI bus. OpenBSD numbers the disks so that sd0 is
the lowest SCSI id, sd1 is the next lowest, and so on. Your SS4
is probably booting off the disk with SCSI id 3 and the OpenBoot
devalias disk because that's how SunOS used to do it. I suggest
you pull out all your disks and re-assign their SCSI ids starting
at 1 and counting up. Then change your OpenBoot boot-device to
disk1 and try booting again.
