Problem with AIT2 ATAPI drive Red Hat

Ok now forgive me as I am new to Linux, completely new but I like what I see so far... I have Red Hat 4.0 enterprise on a new HP proliant server. It's all set up and running like a dream but for some reason my AIT2 ATAPI drive does not seem to be installed correctly. When I go to the (forgive me for calling the menus by the wrong name but the machine is not in front of me) disk utilities menu my AIT drive is not shown as a mount point. It isn't there at all. When I go to the system devices it is there and is recognized as a Sony AIT drive but in the window below the driver is unknown and so is the make/model of the drive??? It seems as if the driver has not been installed and so it isn't recognixed correctly. It spins up when booting and has power but I just can't access it. Has anybody got any idea as to why? Thank you in advance for your help...

You can not mount a tape drive.

You should be able to access your drive like the link below.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
