The real question (no modules relevant in your scenario) is: does the firmware
see the scsi disk and allows you booting from it?

If not, you can still boot from wd0 and use a kernel with hardwired 
"root on sd0a"; you create that by changing

  config          netbsd  root on ? type ?


  config          netbsd  root on sd0a type ?

in your kernel config file.
