on x86, qemu by default does not emulate a scsi device.

if you look at my last set of postings, you will see a patch set for adding 
scsi controllers on demand.

its got some code formatting issues, so i understand why it hasnt been merged 
as of yet. i intend to publish a new version in the next couple of days.
