I think if you look in the directory where clonezilla stored the image 
you'll find a file with the device name in an obvious form - or you can 
hand-create the partitions and tell clonezilla to restore partitions 
instead of the disk.  However, the bigger problem is that to boot from a 
scsi disk you need the appropriate driver module included in your initrd 
image.  There are ways to do this, but it might be easier to do a clean 
install and copy the content you need to keep over.
