I've done this before but for the life of me, I can't figure out the problem is. I have booted from the floppies, created by os/2 partition, added it to the boot manager then did the install.

Upon reboot, nothing happens except GRUB with a flashing prompt. I had linux installed on this beast ages ago but I thought by wiping clean and installing os/2, it would have gotten rid of grub. What am I missing?

Well, the os/2 4 installer doesn't erase the mbr. I booted from a windows 95 cd, wiped out the mbr then started the os/2 install and it worked like a champ.
