What does the output of the following show:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Also, I see the tape module being loaded but not the SCSI controller module. Is it compiled into the kernel? What about the other modules, scsi_mod? Does dmesg show the tape drive being recognized too?

cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices: none

I have messed and hacked around with it a bit so i have a renewed list below of some things that may be of interest.

Somehow i LOST the st module (Now compiled into kernel) does that matter?
