Since most of redhat is still on the 2.4 kernels, that might work.

However we are being told that ide-scsi and the 2.6 kernels don't get 
along and that we really should be using the normal /dev/hdX 
addresses now for cd's and dvd's, and that works better than ide-scsi 
ever did here.  But for tape, I think you'll need to verify that sg 
is being builtin.

The regular ide driver has been improved considerably, and may make 
all this moot now.  As far as the software that came with the drive, 
its probably windows-centric and won't play well with linux.  Bin it 
and go take a look at amanda, <http://amanda.org>.
