I don=B4t know if it helps:

I=B4ve proxy-arped my notebook a while ago.
(I used slip until I got a PCMCIA Ethernet NIC)

I used something like this on the "router" (RiscPC with

# (in /etc/rc.conf)
ifconfig_ne0=3D"<router=B4s IP> netmask"
ifconfig_sl0=3D" <notebook=B4s IP> netmask"

# (in /etc/netstart.local)
slattach -h -s 115200 /dev/tty00
arp -s <notebook=B4s IP> <ne0=B4s MAC> pub       # (NB: The "pub" is vita=

On the other side (IBM Thinkpad 360CSE with netbsd-1.3.2/i386) a simple
slattach/ifconfig/route add default

Well - it worked and I was happy!
