With FC6 they are handled as SCSI drives. (USB drives are also
handled as SCSI drives. I am not sure about Firewire drives, but I
would expect that they are as well.) With F7 and later, all IDE
drives are treated as SCSI drives. I am not sure if any hard drive
is treated as something other then a SCSI drive with the newer
releases. Maybe MFM and RLL drives, if they are even supported any
more. But even I send the MFM drives and controllers to be recycled.
(Except for the one in my CP/M machine.)
