Not necessarily. My idea is: If you have an SCSI controller working,
sr_mod will happily look for devices connected to that controller, but
it may fail to find the IDE drive if ide-scsi is not yet loaded.
On my system I have set
alias scsi-hostadapter ide-scsi ,
but that makes sense only because I have no other SCSI.

At least it may be worth trying...

Good idea. Not only look for error messages but also for _success_
messages, at some point it should say that it found the device.
