I take it that there is no support for this beast? I'm running
2.1 release on a Pent 100. Here's pertinent information about
the drive:

/kernel: (ahc0:2:0): "EXABYTE EXB-2501 2400" type 1 removable SCSI 2
/kernel: st0(ahc0:2:0): Sequential-Access density code 0x92,  drive empty

When I do:

$ tar cf /dev/nrst0 .

I get:

/kernel: st0(ahc0:2:0): ILLEGAL REQUEST asc:26,0 Invalid field in parameter list
/kernel: st0: Cannot set selected mode
/kernel: st0: bad request, must be between 512 and 1024

What gives? Can anyone help?
