This question was asked at… - it doesn't have an answer, but perhaps you could look at the additional information that was requested on that question, and consider updating your question with some more details. For example, are you generating the OSM tiles yourself (e.g. from a local tileserver)? – BradHards Apr 7 '13 at 20:45
If you render your own tiles you could just do an import of the netherlands dump file from instead of the full planet dump. – til_b Apr 8 '13 at 8:51
