Assuming it's a SCSI tape drive then there is no particular reason it 
would not work.  SCSI tape drives are all the same as far as the OS is 
concerned.  If your SCSI controller is supported then there is no 
particular reason to believe it won't work.

Of course, some manufacturer somewhere may make one that behaves badly 
for some reason (there are no guarantees) but if google doesn't show 
anyone having trouble then the likelihood is that no-one is having trouble.
