Travan IDE tape drive on 500SC

I have been looking at the 500SC as an entry level server for a small 
not-for-profit.    I plan to run RedHat 7.1.

The backup software I am looking at says it works with

"Any IDE or floppy controller device supported by a SCSI emulation device 
driver "

Does the Travan IDE tape backup unit that optionally comes with the 500SC 
meet this requirement?  Is the SCSI emulation device driver a function of 
RedHat or the device?
