It should recognise the SCSI version without problems. However there is
no support for ATAPI disks (type 0) in 1.3.
Support for this is present in -current (added by cgd and only tested with
ZIP drives) and I plan make this available as an unofficial patch for
1.3. I'll work on this this evening. More news tomorow.
