    Ok, it was the "host0" parameter that I was missing. Thanks. Everything is
    working now. I have not had any conflicts with the ide-scsi driver, so I
    can't duplicate the problem you are having. Here's how I am set up:

    Kernel 2.4.0-test12 patched with Tim Waugh's CVS repository (from his page

    For the kernel config, I've got:

    # Parallel port support:

    # SCSI support
    # SCSI support type

    # SCSI low-level drivers


    I am not sure if the dmesg output from my system will help, since I am using
    different kernel and driver code, but I am including it anyway.
