You don't need the AMI code. The s2881/s2882 have the same controller, and it
works without any special support in LinuxBIOS as far as I know - and
definitely without the sii3114 option rom from the proprietary BIOS.
What exactly is your problem with the sata controller - are you having issues
with FILO or beyond that, when booting the kernel?

If you want vga, you will probably need to use the ATI video bios. You'll
need to extract it from the proprietary bios. Have a look at the build
tutorial for the s2881/s2882, it's explained there how to do this.
