The "config -x /netbsd" command (assuming /netbsd is your current
kernel) should show if USERCONF is enabled/uncommented).

I'd probably look like:

> boot /netbsd -c

Which should drop you to the userconf utility prompt, which supports
various commands including the "disable <device>" one (see "man 4
userconf" for more information).  Disabled devices will only be
disabled for the current boot session.
