If it's anything like my old proliant, the tape drive
is on ncr0 or ncr1 (or sym[01] any of which are the
on-board scsi controllers), which do not appear to probe
on your system.  If your tape drive is cabled to
ida0 or ida1, you'll probably need to resort to the
array controller firmware or CD, depending, and
set it up from there.
