Backup and restore?

Hi all,
I am using RedHat AS2.1 and have a problem which need your help. I have my system backup (using tar) and now I want to restore. The problem is that I cannot boot into OS, so that cannot use "tar" to restore. I try to boot by CDROM and typing "linux rescue" at the command line. However, it cannot recognize tape.
Please help me, I'll appreciate it!
Sorry for my poor English!

What do you mean by set disk, can you show me more? Tape is recognized as /dev/st0
