Your drive uses a SCSI interface. No special driver other then the SCSI tape module st should be required to use the drive. If this is the only tape drive connected to the computer its device ID will be /dev/st0 (automatic rewind) and /dev/nst0 ( will not rewind after completion of command) The utility mt is useful in checking the tape drives status.

You can use any of the linux backup utility i.e. tar to write to tape.

If you need additional help please provide the fillowing info:
What linux distribution is running on this PC?
What type of SCSI controller is installed?
Provide the output of lsmod.

This appears to be a firmware upgrade utility:
