        To my knowledge, yes.  The main difference between SCSI and IDE is that
LBA (>8.4) support for IDE has only become recently available, to my
recollection.  since SCSI cards have their own BIOS, they've been pretty
intuitive about recognizing *ANY* size hard drive.

I know there are also 15,000,000 other reasons to use SCSI over IDE, but I
can't recall them all right now.  (I'd check out the SCSI HOW-TO:
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/unmaintained/SCSI-HOWTO)

Cheers!
