Um...  I'm not entirely clear on what you want to do!
MacBSD seems to run fine for me using SL/IP over a 14.4 baud connection.
MacBSD *does not* have a working ethernet driver, and you can't run
MacTCP under MacBSD.  (regular UNIX TCP would be enough!)  MacBSD
takes over the machine completely.  I suspect you understand that
and I have misunderstood your post.

If you were interested on placing the IIcx off of your network as
a SL/IP node, that would work.  You'd need MacSLIP (is there such a
thing?) running under MacOS on another machine, connected to your
IIcx.  This is probably not what you want. 

Good luck, whatever you do.
