What should really happen is that boot0cfg should use the same algorithm as 
sysinstall where it only turns packet mode on by default if packet mode is 
needed.  It's probably safe to use packet mode on most ATA BIOSen out there 
(anything post 1994), but SCSI BIOSen are an entirely different animal.
