I have installed an ATL L500 tape library with an DLT 7000 drive. I can
use the DLT drive with no problem, but I can't seem to get the library
robot to work under RedHat 6.2. I am not sure which device to use or
which driver to use for the loader/library. The host detects the SCSI
tape at /dev/st0, but there is nothing for the loader. Can anyone
suggest where to begin on this. Below is the output from dmesg for the
SCSI adapter. Thanks for any help.

When all else fails, read the documentation.
