Converting IDE disk to SCSI in Workstation 6

Hello,

I recently installed Worstation 6 on my Linux host and it works great. My guest operating system is Vista. When I created the guest machine I didn't realize it defaulted to IDE for the disk type. Is there a way to convert this to SCSI? Does it even matter? My host machine has 4 SAS drives 15,000rpm in a raid 10 configuration so I want to match the disk type appropriately. Even though the disk type is IDE it seems to be performing well. Haven't really tested it. If anyone can offer advice and/or solution on how to convert I would appreciate it. Thanks!

No need to convert. Performance should be the same (or very close).
