As the disk is virtualized you won't see any performance of SCSI vs. IDE.  Is there any reason for using SCSI?  It strikes me that this would be needlessly complicating your install by requring the BusLogic scsi drivers, et al.

I just tried adding a couple of diffent types of hard drives and i can get it to work if i add it as an IDE drive, but i would prefur to have it mounted a s a scsi drive.

So far I remember if You configuring scsi drive You can coose scsi controller type. There are two emulations supported. Have You tried both?

One SCSI emulation is BusLogic and I believe that's the best one to use. We always use it at work anyway. Make sure your kernel has scsi, sd & Buslogic built in (not modules(except if you can get them into the initrd))
