Question IDE Tape Drive: HP Colorado 5GB


Linux newbie *and* LinuxQuestions.org newbie...

Trying to get RedHat 7.1 to recognize /dev/st0 as my IDE HP Colorado 5GB tape drive so I can dump. Message = "Cannot open output /dev/st0"

Do I need a Linux driver for this device? Where shall I look?

Do you have paride support turned on in the kernel? (either as a module or compiled in)


And here are the instructions:
