First thing I would check is the output of dmesg, you may need to reboot
depending on how many messages were added since the last reboot. You
should some entries where the kernel detectes the drive (by model number) and
assigns it a device name (st0).
As an example, look for your primary hard drive entry (hda, hde, sda etc).
There should be a similar entry for st0 after it detects the tape drive.
If not, that most likely means the kernel is missing some required driver(s).
It sounds like you have the scsi adapter configured and loaded, do you have
scsi tape support configured and loaded (if a moduled)?
