TAPE Drive Issues


This may be as simple as telling me that what I'm trying to do is impossible, so here goes:

I have an old HP SureStore DAT24 SCSI tape drive, that I'd like to use with Fedora Build 2. The problem is, the only SCSI interface to my system is an unused RAID Controller, that Linux already recognizes.

Can I use the SCSI Interface on that RAID controller to use my SCSI Tape Drive?

not unless the documentation on the RAID controller says it can run a tape drive, most likely no
