Thanks for the replies so far. Some command output below (no more text from me below command output).

In short, ifconfig -a does not see the device under netbsd (not ne2), and the dmesg output of netbsd does not detect anything isapnp, or anything that looks like an NE2000. I snipped the linux dmesg to just the ne2k-related bits; I can post the whole thing if that would be useful. 

netbsd ifconfig -a:
lo0: flags=8008<LOOPBACK,MULTICAST> mtu 33196
ppp0: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
ppp1: flags=8010<POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
sl0: flags=c010<POINTOPOINT,LINK2,MULTICAST> mtu 296
sl1: flags=c010<POINTOPOINT,LINK2,MULTICAST> mtu 296

linux dmesg (relevant bits):
