YES, it is IDE.

You can read and write cd's using the scsi interface.  To read the
cd, you mount the drive as you would if it were a scsi drive, the
command line I use is:

mount /dev/sr0 /cdrom -t iso9660 -ro

What won't work, or at least won't work for me, is ripping audio
off the disks through scsi emulation.  So I want to copy CDs I
boot to an ATAPI kernel, rip my CDs, then boot a scsi kernel and
write the CDs.
