I built the mac68k NetBSD port from source (version 7.99.71) using the git repository:
When I tried to boot from the BSD/mac68k booter, it crashed. Here's a screenshot of the emulator, moments before it crashed:
To repeat it, please install Basillisk II. Here's a link to the official site:
Here are the instructions:

$ git clone
After downloading and setting up the repository you can, for example, try to compile the Unix version of Basilisk II:

$ cd macemu/BasiliskII/src/Unix
$ ./
$ make

After that, for emulating Mac II si, you can use the system 7.0 disk image from here:
Or, You can use system 7.5.3, whichever you like. 
If, you're using Basilisk GUI on linux, Mac OS X or Windows (I use CLI), you can find the relevant instructions here:

I downloaded the ROMs from:

After you're done setting it up, you can launch it using CLI (replace the PATHs relative to your own system):

BasiliskII --disk /extra/System70_boot.dsk --rom /extra/macrom/36B7FB6C\ -\ Mac\ IIsi.ROM --ramsize 200000000 --disk /extra/mac68k.img --cdrom /extra/mac68k/releasedir/images/NetBSD-7.99.71-mac68k.iso --cpu 3

(Warning: using --modelid option for this particular model will result in a non bootable machine, you'll get stuck at the boot screen.)

After that, for installing NetBSD you can follow the instructions from: the NetBSD System (Sysinst Method)
