boot cdrom:b did not improve matters.

So I downloaded a fresh image - and now I get the following

ok boot cdrom
Boot device: /sbus/espdma@e,8400000/esp@e,8800000/sd@6,0:f  File and args:
Short disk read
The file just loaded does not appear to be executable.

if I try (b)

ok boot cdrom:b
Boot device: /sbus/espdma@e,8400000/esp@e,8800000/sd@6,0:b  File and args:
Fast Data Access MMU Miss

probe-scsi gives

ok probe-scsi
Target 0
  Unit 0   Disk     FUJITSU MAG3182L SUN18G 1111
Target 6
  Unit 0   Removable Read Only device    TOSHIBA XM5701TASUN12XCD0997
