Wow, I just came across this old, unreplied thread and thought I could comment on it. (GMane makes it very easy to scroll through past conversations!)

Yes, I have set up OS X + NetBSD dual-booting in the past on a MacBook Pro. It works in the same way as OS X + Windows dual-booting does. (This was a test on a MacBookPro2,2; it didn't last long though... and these days I have NetBSD on itself in this machine.)
