bosboot problem please help!

each time I try to do a bosboot or a mksysb the cpu says that he doesn't find /unix... I don't understand cause the kernel is here on the computer and at this exact place with the right name. I tried to force with -k /unix but it doesn't do anything. He doesn't find it and it is here...
Do you have any idea or explanation?
