hda=iscsi --what it means


I am having a IDE hard disk(Samsung).I installed Knoppix on my hard disk and started using it.
when I checked the lilo.conf it tried to pass a command line argument
hda=scsi,hdb=scsi
where hda is my hard disk and hdb is my cdrom.(I didn't made any changes to lilo.conf,The lilo.conf is automatically created during knoopix installation).
By passing those above mentioned parametes, I think it is trying to use my IDE diisk as SCSI. AM I CORRECT?.
Is it possible to use a IDE device as SCSI device by passing the parameters? .




I checked my demsg and found the following
*************************************************************
hda: ST340015A, ATA DISK drive
hdb: GCR-8521B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 78165360 sectors (40021 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=5169/240/63
ide-cd: passing drive hdb to ide-scsi emulation.
hdb: attached ide-scsi driver.
Partition check:
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0: p1 p2 < p5 p6 p7 p8 p9 >
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: HL-DT-ST Model: CD-ROM GCR-8521B Rev: 1.02
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 52x/52x cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
********************************************************************
From this I found that My CD-drive is detected as a SCSI device.But what abt my harddisk?.

"From this I found that My CD-drive is detected as a SCSI device.But what abt my harddisk?."

There are three possible modes of support for your hda and hdb devices, ide, ide-scsi, and scsi. hda is using ide. hdb is using ide-scsi.
