It does IDE, but the installer will only install onto a SCSI drive (you
can manually copy to an IDE drive later).
DR3 (which one engineer admits has had "any day now" status for a month or
more :-) will allow direct installation on IDE drives, which is
particularly important for G3 owners (me :-).
I don't know about 603e/Alchemy support, however.
