Default Problem booting on i386


I'm trying to get a look at OpenBSD 4.9 but it won't boot after installing. Kernel messages scroll past and then it goes black. The computer then goes into a power on/power off cycle every few seconds until I force a power off by holding down the power button. I've got a PL2303 USB serial port connected to a second PC but I can't figure out what it is called and don't know if it is recognised at boot for the set tty parameter. I've mounted the drive on a Linux box but all the files in /var/log are 0 length so it seems there is no kernel message logging on boot. Any other ideas ?
