kdat /mounting a tape drive

For some reason i can not for the life of me mount a tape drive. When i go to hardware management it is detecting it and it tells me the type that i have. it says its located at /dev/hdb. however when i use kdat and try to mount the tape it says that there is nothing there to mount. it say im pointing to the wrong spot.

when i go to /proc/ide/hdb it shows that it is a tape drive. im running real low on ideas. any help? thanks
oh yeah im on redhat 9.0
