Try (he should still be supporting 68K). I would still
recommend 7.1, though, since it has much lower memory overhead. You can
get the Network Access disk and that will solve your TCP/IP issues.
7.5.5 is simpler, true, but it's probably too bloated for an LC.

Yes. Make an alias of the booter in the Startup Items folder in the System
Folder. Then go into the booter's options and set accordingly (there should
be an option there to boot NetBSD after so many seconds; I give mine five).
Restart and you should go straight into NetBSD after a brief courtesy pause
in case you had MacOS housekeeping to do (Command-period aborts out).
