How to link Scrum release backlog to conventional project plan (MS project) in keeping sprint benefits?

We use the Scrum methodology for our software development. Since software development isn't the core activity of our company, and since this company isn't agile methods oriented yet, I need, as the ScrumMaster, to provide an interface between the Scrum methodology and the company.The top management asks me to maintain a classic project plan, using MS Project, at mid-term (6 months), with resources defined, etc...My question is: How can I provide a useful project plan for my top management while keeping all the flexibility and agility of my team in the daily organisation and operation, and also stay Scrum compliant?!For me, defining resources in the project plan removes a lot of benefits of sprint concepts, right?
