Another thought that I had was that you said you could boot from the
NetBSD cd or the NetBSD installed on the hard disk, but couldn't boot from
the OS X cd from Apple. This may be a third stupid question, but have you
tried booting the Bootcamp cd, which I believe has utilities to configure
your mac in various ways. If you can boot from the Bootcamp cd, perhaps it
can then restore functionality required to let OS X boot.
