Description of problem:
on booting 'linux rescue' to do a full system restore, my DLT was not
via /dev/st0 (nst0) there was no tape device. A full restore had to be
done by first
completing a minimal RH install for the tape drive. More flexibility
requried in rescue mode. A Side note of this, lack of MAKEDEV in /dev, and
lack of dump/restore. Should add everything required to do restore from
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot- linux rescure from CD
2. answer all question to get to prompt.
3. mt stat (or ls /dev/st*)
4. note lack of tape dev.
Actual Results: noticed lack of tape device.
Expected Results: a full restore from tape.
We've added the st module to the second stage moduleball in CVS
