A couple of 'obvious' things to check:

   1)   If you built the kernel, did you configure scsi tape support?

   2)   If you have the tape support compiled as a module, is the module
        loaded?  Check with lsmod.  If it isn't loaded, you might need to load
        it by hand with 'insmod st' in the startup scripts.

   3)   Do you have the '/dev/st0' tape device node created?  If not, you might
        need to:  'cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV st0'
