Hello:  I am realitively new to Linux so be patient.  I have everything
setupnad running properly except for my TR-4 tape drive.  It is an
Exabyte drive (ATAPI) and has functioned flawlessly under Win98.  I want
to set it up now under Linux (RH 6.0).  Need help in easy to follow
steps (so my mind does not melt).
