Here lies your problem. In netbsd-GENERIC, ne0 at isa is supposed to have
I/O port  0x280 and IRQ 9 and ne1 at isa I/O port 0x300 and irq 10.

Either change the configuration of your card, or rebuild your kernel with
ne0     at isa? port 0x240 irq 3.

It is most easy to boot to userconf (boot -c) and change it from there
(change ne0) until you find time to rebuild the kernel.
