Question how to mount a IDE Partition as a SCSI disk?

Dear Experts,

I am now using an application which request 2 harddisk with at lease 1 scsi disk. I have a 40 GB IDE hard disk only. Can I emulate a SCSI disk by a partition or IMG file?

ide-scsi module?

At the boot prompt line add: hdb=ide-scsi or whatever your ide disk you want emulating.
Haven't tried it [if I get a chance I'll try for you] but should do the job.
The only thing with this is that it emulates the whole disk, not by partition.
