1. DLT 2000 on Adaptec 2940U

We have a DLT 2000 SCSI tape drive on an Adaptec 2940U SCSI card running
under RedHat 5.2.  The drive makes backups and does restores on other
machines with no problems.  However, on the RedHat box, the mt command can
rewind and unload the tape but cannot do any tape transport functions,
i.e. fsf, bsf, seek, etc.  The drive is recognized by the SCSI BIOS and
the operating system but we cannot figure out why we can't move the tape.
SCSI tape support and generic support is compiled into the kernel we run,
currently 2.2.0-pre5.  Any ideas?
