tape device file unknown(null)

I am having troubles creating a device file for a tape drive. I booted from CD and now at the prompt do a hwgmr -show scsi and the tape is null. I tried deleting the id and still null. I am tring to do MAKEDEV to MKC200 tape and it is not valid?? help!

You have to run /sbin/dn_setup -install_tape if you start from the CD.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
