I finally got the hardware but the RAID controller was not detected. I added
the required lines to amr(4) and everything seems to be okay now. Here's
my dmesg:

amr0 at pci2 dev 14 function 0: AMI RAID <PERC 4e/Si>
amr0: interrupting at irq 7
amr0: firmware 513O, BIOS H418, 256MB RAM
ld0 at amr0 unit 0: RAID 1, optimal
ld0: 69880 MB, 8908 cyl, 255 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 143114240 sectors

PS. I'll submit a pullup request for NetBSD 2.x (it's too late for 2.0).
