ide tape drives are known to be a pita to get working

you are probably gonna have to do do some searching in mt, perhaps make
a symlink to /dev/nst0

Were you looking to do tar/cpio type backups or did you intend to
install a full fledged application such as amanda or bacula?

I've only used SCSI tape drives, used amanda previously, am now playing
with bacula...both are very sophisticated and effective, neither are
easy to get started.

What is the question?
