No -- installing on SCSI is no harder than installing on ATAPI.  Just
remember that the disk devices are 'da' rather than 'ad' and
everything will be fine.

Note that the GENERIC kernel is a single processor kernel, which will
work fine on a dual Proc system, but (obviously) only use one of the
processors.  You'll need to compile yourself a custom kernel with the
multiprocessor stuff enabled to make use of both processors.  The
config changes you need to make are described in the GENERIC config
