Responses inline.  I just tried an lsdev at the console and
it dies when accessing the disk;

cd@ 0xff5c
disk@ 0xef68
    disk0:  BIOS drive A:
            disk0a: FFS
            disk0c: FFS
    disk1:  BIOS drive B
    disk2:  BIOS drive C

Any ideas?

The install hangs at this point (just before sysinstall

The CD or CDROM ;) ?
I've just booted a minimal install on vmware so the disk
seams ok.
I'll have to pull the cdrom out to find anymore about it.

There is nothing else to pull out except the floppy drive.
