Maybe I'm totally dense, or something...?

cvs -P :pserver:anoncvs at anoncvs.netbsd.org:/cvsroot co -R netbsd-0-8 src

or substitute the tag netbsd-0-9 or netbsd-0-9-base if you need those 
revisions. Nothing is going to disappear into a digital dumpster when 
you have revision control systems...

to know, and you can get at any other version you want as well, just as 

If you want binaries and not just sources, then it might be a bit more 
tricky. But since you can build the system from the sources, I can't see 
that this should be a big hurdle.
