Seagate tape drive


Hi,

Anyone knows how to install a STD2401LW SCSI tape drive on RedHat Advanced Server 3.0 ?

Where can I find the drivers ?

I tried in seagate.com . No luck

Thanks in advance.

The only driver required is the SCSI tape module st. Check the output of lsmod to see if it is loading. The tape device will be /dev/st0. It is also nice to install the tape utilities mt. You can check the status of the drive like:
mt -f /dev/st0 status
