Well, take it out and try again.

NetBSD doesn't do its own AutoConfig(tm), it just copies the configuration 
the Expansion.library found. So we know that at that point the device is
not in a "shutup" state. As it was configured and (potentially) in use before
booting NetBSD, it might well be misbehaving; e.g. create some interupts which 
would have been serviced by the Oktagon's device driver (the AmigaOS one).

Or, as a less drastic measure: take its device driver out of whatever it
is in (sys:expansion drawer, or comment out the devs:mountlist entry for
it, or do whatever else you did to get it working reversed) before
booting NetBSD.
