Dont understand hdc=ide-scsi behaviour.

I dont understand the behaviour of kernel 2.4.18 (and probably all others) when
I put the line
on the load line.

I would EXPECT to get the ide-scsi driver for hdc (my cdwriter) but instead
get it for BOTH hdc and hdd, the cdwriter and the zip drive.

After starting this way (with hdc=ide-scsi), I find that
        /dev/cdrom2 -> /dev/scd0
and that to access the zip drive I have to use /dev/sda1 (or /dev/sda4)

I would EXPECT to get to them via /dev/hdd1 or /dev/hdd4.

Did I miss something or is this a bug????
