It's not that hard.

1) cd /sys/arch/i386/conf
2) create a config file for your machine (I call mine AZATHOTH)
3) config AZATHOTH
4) cd ../compile/AZATHOTH
5) make depend && make
6) mv /netbsd /onetbsd && cp netbsd /netbsd
7) reboot.

If you need more detail, see the 386BSD FAQ.

What soundcard do you have?  The audio drivers have come a long way
since 1.0.
