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))

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.
