Using a DAT160 with NT4

I've got a white-box backup server running a DAT40 drive (that's failing) hooked to an Adaptec 19160 SCSI controller. This box runs NT4 sp6a. I need to replace the drive and I want to use the DAT160 as a plug-in replacement. Upgrading from NT means buying new backup software. I can't afford to upgrade the box hardware, OS, backup software, and tape hardware all at once. HP will not tell me whether this drive will run under NT4.

Has anybody done it? Can I phase in my upgrades beginning with the tape drive? Any advice would be appreciated.
