I took the opportunity to try it firsttime here and found the following hints:
First, install crunchgen and copy it in your path. This little helper resides in /usr/src/distrib/crunch/
Some info in: http://www.monkey.org/openbsd/archive/misc/0204/msg02248.html
Second, look at:
I only configured the RAMDISK-Kernel (no compile necessary!) and did make in
/usr/src/distrib/i386/floppies/ramdisk/ - nothing more of the nifty stuff mentioned in the link.
That did it for me and created an already compressed floppy31.fs
Because i don't really need a boot image right now you could perhaps be so kind to test the remaining parts (dd it to floppy and install) :)
