post error 162 and no floppy drive ;(

I got an old Prosignia 300 from work a P75 all SCSI.
The problem is when I boot the thing I get a Post error 162.
No options for F1/F10, ( don't work either )
The main problem is that the floppy drive doesn't even work, so I can't use bootdisk's or whatever, since it's an all SCSI including the CD-Rom, I can't access anything.
After asking the person who used it the last time ( as a linux firewall ) He told me he used a smartstart to erase the config, that was the last thing he did after turning it over !!!
He was sure the floppy drive worked before because he saved his FW-config on a floppy, just before using the smartstart cd to erase the config.
If anyone knows how to get the machine to work, plz reply.

Take this SmartStart CD from that person and configure machine using setup from this CD
