I guess you have that unsupported ethernet-card plugged in when you
get those errors? If so, that might be the cause for your crashes,
because if you initialize the card on the AmigaOD-side and then switch
over to NetBSD, the card's still initialized and expects certain
handlers to be present in RAM which surely aren't there when you run

So, to test the binaries you should remove the ethernet-card from your
amiga before re-trying (or even better: write a driver for it ;-)

Hope this helps,
