Richard,

Thank you for the reply.  I read the tutorial that you mentioned and 
performed the commands.  Partial output is shown:
# dmesg | grep TAPE
hdd: Seagate STT20000A, ATAPI TAPE drive

So it appears to find the TAPE drive.

# /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
FATAL: Module ide_scsi not found.

I suspect that this means that the ide_scsi is not installed, or not loading 
properly.  Do you know of a tutorial that addresses the installation of the 
ide_scsi module?

Daniel
