I'm new to NetBSD, but doing this with FreeBSD ist quite easy and I
imagine that the same tools are there for NetBSD too:

Put the kernel (or all of /) on a CD (or some other bootable media). Then
encrypt everything else on the "hidden" machine. Although it sounds pretty
compley, it's actually a pretty straight-forward procedure.
