    not sure if it's still the case but cdrecord required it to support non-scsi cd / dvd burners (ie most of them)

    You see that message at boot because in the file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules theres a line that tries to load that module, modprobe ide-scsi.

    I assume that you custom compiled a kernel and you ommited that module, or you build it in the kernel (not as a module).

    Is it necessary? If you are using a 2.4 kernel most likely yes. But if you have a 2.6 kernel it is no longer necessary.

    If you are using a 2.6 kernel and don't want to see that message at boot time, just comment out the line that loads it at the rc.modules file.
