yes your correct but I forgot considering I always use initrd image.You 
could create a file in /etc directory called modules and add the 
ide-scsi to it and then add this script to the correct run level directory

if [ -f /etc/modules ]; then
    while read MODULES; do
       /sbin/modprobe $MODULES
    done < /etc/modules

make it executable and name it like


then on boot any module listed in the /etc/modules file will get loaded 

that will help
