Well this is why your regular atapi drive isn't working anymore :-).

No nead to worry about the audio cds, you never mount them.

I have seen similar docs saying that you can't have regular ide-atapi
and scsi emulation support at the same time, but it isn't true. So go
back an include ide-atapi support for your creative, and
scsi-emulation for your yamaha (I would just do it modularly). Then
set up lilo or grub or whatever you use so it knows you want to use
emulation on that specific drive...
append="hd?=ide-scsi" //replace ? with proper channel for lilo
hd?=ide-scsi //replace ? with proper channel for grub
