I'm still running 2.4 on this box, with a combi drive as the primary
slave. That shows twice too, as


and then _many_ lines later is the second part

hdb: attached ide-scsi driver.
scsi1: SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: HL-DT-ST Model: RW/DVD GCC-4320B Rev: 1.01
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

So I guess all that's happening is that the two parts come together
when we give up ide-scsi. The error messages look as if the kernel is
trying to find any partitions, which isn't going to happen without media
- you should see how many error messages I get from an ATPAI ZIP drive
in 2.4 when I boot without media, but they're nothing to worry about.
