Did you try to netboot a kernel with "-a" and then continue to boot from
disk? I think I tried this some time ago and still got the same problems
like when booted from disk. But I may be wrong.

I had a look at http://www.openpa.net/cpu.html
The only CPU without integrated FPU is the PA7000. This CPU is not
supported at the moment anyway. So it is save to asume the presence
of a FPU on any machine NetBSD supports at the moment.
