We (Katsuo Senmyo and I) wrote a driver of D-Link DE600 Parallel port 
Ethernet LAN Adapter for NetBSD-1.0. We will announce alpha test to 
this mailing-list, when we are ready to alpha release (If someone want 
to use it).

But I cannot recommend you to buy a DE600, because it seems to be
BAD hardware, so we should do a terrible dirty hack to use it.
(When I checked Linux version of DE600 driver, they'd done similar hack
as ours) According to Linux driver, DE620 is better hardware than 
DE600, but we don't have DE620 to write driver. :-<
