Do not install a version of BSD that old. You're asking for problems of all sorts. – Chris S Dec 12 '12 at 16:08

You are trying to install a version of OpenBSD that is five and a half years old.

Starting with OpenBSD 4.2, an installation ISO is part of the release and there is no need to create your own.

See for instructions on installing OpenBSD from CDROM.
