I don't get anything, I presume because GRUB is on the Debian partition, 
however when I alter /netbsd to /netbsd.gz and then try to boot, I get a 
different error:

Error 15: File not found

Here for reference is the exact output when I try to boot NetBSD:

Booting 'NetBSD'

rootnoverify (hd0,9,a)
kernel  --type=netbsd /netbsd
 	[Multiboot-elf, <0x100000:0x86467c:0x0>, 
<0x966000:0x63765:0x56634>, shtab=0xa20348, entry=0xc0100000]

Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format

Press any key to continue

... barring any errors in the install process (I will try again) what it 
feels like to me is that the kernel perhaps changed to a type that my 
version of GRUB (the one available with Debian testing) is not able to 
handle. I'll do some more research on that - I have GNU GRUB v. 0.97.
