OK, I figured it out, not quite sure why I didn't get it to work in the
first place. The key is to abort pxeboot, and enter 

load tftp:miniroot.kmod
boot tftp:netbsd-GENERIC.gz

after that, it went off without a problem - although I'm now mildly puzzled 
why GENERIC now doesn't seem to want to deal with my ethernet adapter 
anymore, considering how I just did a net install with it...
