I use the following block in modules.conf to load all the stuff I need
for a cd burner...

# CD drive (w/ SCSI emulation)
add above cdrom sr_mod sg
add above sr_mod ide-scsi

Basically, that adds a couple of extra items to the dependencies defined
by the modules themselves - cdrom now requires sr_mod and sg, while
sr_mod in turn requires ide-scsi. Not sure if it's optimal, but it works
for me.
