Description Joshua Giles 2005-01-25 15:26:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
Platform: All with IDE interface
Platform tested: PE600SC
BIOS: =A09
Tape drive: Travan40 (Seagate STT3401A)

OS detects the Tape drive which can be verified by viewing the
hwbrowser or  /etc/sysconfig/hwconf. But none of the device files :
are created. 

mt -f /dev/hdb gives the following : /dev/hdb: No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 4 pre-RC2 (2.6.9-5) with Travan40 Tape drive
2. View the hwbrowser, /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
3. Check the o/p of: 
     a) ls /dev/hdb
     b) mt -f /dev/hdb status 

Actual Results:  ide tape drives are not made available for use.

Expected Results:  Autodetection and loading of the ide-scsi or
(preferably) ide-tape driver so that the tape drive is ready for use.
