lilo.conf ide-scsi help

What I wan't to do is enable scsi-emulation on both my hdb and hdc. Just to get things working with my bruner software and what not. This is my current lilo.conf

# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
#compact        # faster, but won't work on all systems.
#timeout = 300
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
vga = 773
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hda2
  label = Linux
  read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# DOS bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
  label = Windows
  table = /dev/hda
# DOS bootable partition config ends
That seems to work fine for hdc, but I can't seem to figure out how to do hdb. I try to just duplicate the line and just add hdb so it looks like this...

but when I go to run 'lilo' again, I get the following...

root@neo:~# lilo
Duplicate entry 'append' at or above line 6 in file '/etc/lilo.conf'
I'm guessing it dosen't like having 2 append lines. So my question is, is there a way to append both devices on the one append line, or is there another way around this?

append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
