using forced hot water radiators on a steam system

I have three bedrooms on my second level that have forced hot water baseboards. They are fed by the steam system used on the first level.I installed steam relief valves on the end of the hot water baseboard but they spit water when I turned them on. Can hot water baseboards be used on a steam system?

Post pics of baseboards, and of the "relief valves" you installed on them.
