Installing ATAPI tape drive
I'm trying to install / configure an ATAPI tape drive on a Fedora system, and am getting very bogged down.
The tape drive is recognized by the hardware. /etc/sysconfig/hwconf has a section for TAPE that shows driver: ignore and desc: Seagate STT20000A. Hardware browser shows a tape drive, with the correct device (/dev/hdd) but manufacturer unknown.
I believe I need to have ide-scsi and scsi_mod, and possibly st or sg. lsmod shows scsi_mod dependent on sg, but there is no sign of ide-scsi. This module doesn't appear to be on the system, but ide-tape is there.
/etc/rc.sysinit has stuff about loading st, but this doesn't happen.
Question 1. How can I set up the right modules to load on startup?
Question 2. Was there a right way to configure the tape (ideally with a graphical tool)
Question 3. Where can I find an explanation of the relationship between the different modules?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
