Booting OpenBSD 2.8

I'm trying to boot OpenBSD 2.8 just after having it installed on /dev/wd1
((hd1,1) in grub).
I made a grub floppy from GNU/Linux with the latest CVS (GRUB 0.5.97).

Here is the section in menu.lst :
title OpenBSD (hd1,1,a)
root (hd1,1,a)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
kernel --type=openbsd /boot

My problem:
I boot from the floppy and select "OpenBSD (hd1,1,a)" in the menu.
When the "kernel" line executes I got an error : "Error 7: Loading below 1MB
is not supported".

What does it means ?

I also tried to load directly the kernel ("kernel --type=openbsd /bsd") but
it crash, saying that the loader is too old.

I don't know what to do.
I'm not yet a new OpendBSD user as I only booted on the light OpenBSD system
from the install media up to now.
