You should only need one of these modules in most normal scenarios;
unless you have added USB ports to your system via a PCI card, for
example. Most people with Intel or VIA chipsets require the usb-uhci
module. However, using both *shouldn't* cause a problem; the superfluous
one *should* just generate errors at load time. I'd get rid of it just
to be sure.

You've recompiled to enable IDE-SCSI support, but did you remember to
disable IDE CDROM support? Not doing so will hide the drives from the
SCSI subsystem.

Hope this helps,
