I'm not sure, whether did you notice, that I wrote, that I was able to boot
system from install-CD successfully, when I disconnected my hard drive from
the controller. Of course, in such case I've got no place to install NetBSD
onto, right?

So, it seems to not be anything BIOS-related, looks like problem with driver
for my SiI3112A. Perhaps the letter "A" at the end has some unknown meaning
to the driver (I mean: driver "likes" only SiI3112, without "A"?).
