Strange the ide-scsi module is not loaded by default, this seems to do
the trick:

[root tuxbox ~]# modprobe -v ide-cd
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.stk16/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-cd.ko
dma=1
FATAL: Error inserting ide_cd
(/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.stk16/kernel/drivers/ide/ide-cd.ko):
Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

[root tuxbox ~]# modprobe -v ide-scsi
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.stk16/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_mod.ko 
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.stk16/kernel/drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.ko
