You should check your documentation, for the SCSI card, the mobo, the tape drive, and yourfriendly neighborhood online man pages. If you bought your OS, there should be something in the documentation on setting up SCSI. Sometimes on bootup, the card itself will give you a hotkey combo to press to run the card's BIOS chip settings. And, the biggest culprit: Is it seated correctly? I can't count the number of times that I upgraded and something wasn't seated right. the cables, the cards, a chip???
