This isn't going to affect the installed kernel's default options or
anything, will it? I can deal with ide-scsi for just the install
(although it'll probably cause problems), but I don't think that it
would be a good to put on any device on the system once installed,
except CD-writers (who have no choice).
I have a number of machines/drives that get weird lockups with ide-scsi,
and kernel list has just told me "ide-scsi sucks, don't use it."
Installation may or may not lock up on me even, if the drives are over
ide-scsi. But, at least if I make it thru that, I'd like nothing but my
CD-writer on ide-scsi on my installed system.
