Description Jos Vos 1999-07-30 04:33:13 EDT
The detection of a SCSI tape in rc.sysinit is obsolete, as
the st.o module does not exist anymore (statically linked).
On systems with a SCSI tape you now see an error during the
boot sequence saying that the st module is not found.

Fix: just remove the 11 corresponding lines in rc.sysinit.
