quick grub.conf question

Trying to burn CDs. Need to emulate SCSI for my 2 CD drives (hdd and hdc). I modified my grub.conf to do this, but I'm wondering if I didn't do it sloppily.

Here's my grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda6
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat 9.0 (2.4.20-8)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,3)
chainloader +1

I just stuck the two 'hdX=ide-scsi' statements right after the other, and it worked. Just didn't know if there's a better way of doing this--wondered if this could eventually lead to problems. Any reply appreciated. Thanks.
