There were so many bugs around sparc floppy support:
but I believe all of them have been fixed in -current
and 5.1_RC3 includes necessary fixes.
Both sparc floppy images in 5.1_RC3 fit 1440KB:
-rw-r--r-- 1 tsutsui tsutsui 1474560 Jul 3 20:41 disk1 (gunzipped)
-rw-r--r-- 1 tsutsui tsutsui 1447573 Jul 3 20:41 disk2
and I've confirmed sysinst starts on my SS1+.
(my SS1+ has some trouble around ttya so no serial console logs..)
