NetBSD 2.1-RC5 setup diskettes won't boot on a Compaq Proliant ML350 G3 server. (The same disks work fine on desktop PCs)

boot-big.fs (from El-torito CDROM) and boot[1|2].fs are all affected.

Symptom: after pressing <ENTER> on the boot prompt, the bootloader starts to load the kernel, but fails when loading the [text] segment.
