The best way is still to take the SD card out and put it in a separate
USB card reader (this is a pilot-link issue more than a NetBSD issue,
really; it's a genuine FAQ over on the pilot-link list). 

The released version of pilot-link tools don't support the VFS
interface used to access the card, but there's a new beta release
candidate (0.12) on that does support it (about
a month old, so active development is still happening). I haven't
tried it on NetBSD yet, but hope to do so in the next couple of days.

There's also a non-free product called "Card Export" from Softick that
you run separately from Hotsync and that makes the PDA act as a umass
device. The beta didn't work on my Tungsten T, but I haven't tried it
since they released a non-beta version.
