DAT Drive installation

Dear Friends,
I want to install one HP 4/16 GB DAT drive to my Intel server having RedHAT Linux 6.2. What is the procedure of installation ?
It has been physically installed with ID 3.
What will be the device name?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Sanjiv Sharma

OK - now that it's working...

Boot your system.

When it comes up, do a . You should see something like:

Vendor: HP Model: C1533A Rev AN04.
Type: sequential-Acess ANSI SCSI rev.

The unit will probably be .

Enter the following command
You should see something like:

SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=-1 block number=-1 partition=0
Tape block size 0 bytes, Density code 0x0 (default)
etc etc etc

Create the following entry for UNIX compatability:

#cd /dev
#ln -s /dev/st0 /dev/rmt0

Finally, if you're using (t)csh, put the following line into your <.login> file.

setenv TAPE /dev/rmt0
