the same problem experienced with mt-st versions 0.5-2 and
0.5b-1 downloaded from RawHide-1.0. mt-st version 0.4-5,
which is a part of RH 5.1 distribution, does work.
my system is as follows
- i686 (PII-400)
- DPT PM2044UW Ultra Wide SCSI controller

running stock RH 5.2 with kernel upgraded to 2.0.36-1
