How to Use USB Tape drive on Centos 5.3 (kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5PAE)
 
Hello there
I have been trying to install HP Storageworks DAT72 on CentOS 5 in vain.
On system reboot, neither /dev/st not /dev/sg is available. May you please

What is the output of lsusb?

I don't use that distro but it should have a hardware info link, possibly under admin applications. Look there to find the tape drive. Also look at /dev/usb.

Give us that info and we'll try to be more helpful.
