You should not need to do that. If /boot is on its own partition,
then even it does not matter if the /boot partition is on the IDE or
the SCSI drive after the system boots. It is only during the boot
process that /boot must be on a drive that the BIOS can read. Linux
handles /boot being on a different drive then / with no problems. So
a kernel install/upgrade would write the new kernel to the IDE
drive, and that is where it will be accessed from on the running system.
