Is it even possible to clone a SCSI hard drive to an IDE hard drive? If so what are some good free tools to do so?

It can be done. The question is, will the result be bootable? Redoing the boot loader installation will probably be required.

I have gone in the other direction, from IDE to SCSI with G4L. G4L has worked well for me.

This is possible, I know you can just use the unix dd to copy say sd0 to hd1 (where hd0 is the copying computer that you don't want to mess up) –  Earlz Apr 22 '10 at 16:20
