SCSI does not work. use IDE.

additional, you can use VIRTIO (with additional drivers) but troublefree is IDE.

see http://www.proxmox.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10563&postcount=10

on production machines, i run most times IDE as this is stable since years.

some users reported issues after some days if the run virtio on windows, we are working on that (but should be resolved with 2.6.32 kernel).

performance: virtio needs slightly lower cpu power, but it is not known to be faster than ide in most usage sceanrios, some guys also reported that it can be slower than ide.
