It has been a while since I last had to worry about getting Linux to recognize a SCSI tape drive but this is really testing me.

I have an older HP DL380 G3 Xeon server and a Quantum 160/320 Gb dual tape drive on which I have installed Ubuntu server V 9.04. Now the hardware when I was running Windows XP saw the tape drive OK but I cannot get Ubuntu to recognize the drive. I have gone through most of the commands I used to use on earlier Linux versions with no luck. Would be VERY grateful for any suggestions on how to diagnose/fix this problem. :confused:
