Hold it ! Isn't "channel 0, ID 0" supposed to be the boot unit 
(i.e. a disk) ??? Well of course with ide-scsi, you cannot AFAIK
set these values, they would be assigned by the driver ...

I do have a real scsi card (with a real Iomega Jaz on ID 0) and
I remember that I once tried to put a cd burner (also scsi) on 
ID 1. Well, it wouldn't work at all, IDs 0 or 1 seemed to be reserved
for direct-access somehow (they definitely did NOT accept cd-rom drives).

(I wouldn't know if this is still true, and whether it applies
to ide-scsi ...)
