Tape drives

Hi,

I'm trying to mount a tape drive (SONY, TSL-11000) in my
poweredge but I'm not sure about the drive for the tape.
Following the installation instructions I should add in
the /etc/rc/rc.local file the lines:

rmmod ide-tape
modprobe ide-scsi
hdparm -d0 /dev/hdX
mt -f /dev/st0 stopoptions no-blkimits

which is the drive letter I should use in hdX?

I attached to this mail the result of typing "dmesg"

Thanks for any information you can provide.

		Tiziana.
