To answer your question, if you wish to do away with initrd then I don't see
why you cannot. Just compile IDE/SCSI/whatever support directly into the
kernel and you should be fine without an initrd.
Have you looked into Debian's make-kpkg tool, it is trivial to compile your
own Debian kernels (i.e. dpkg installable kernels) using it.
