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 file.
