Problems with SCSI card and tape drive

Currenty running SCO Openserver 6 at a Dell PowerEdge T300. I recently installed a driver for an Adaptec SCSI card (adpu320). When I connect a tape drive to it and re-start the system,it freezes and displays the following message: "WARNING: adpu320: Command timed out [C10070D0] (ha= 4)" and the system won't continue booting. I turn the server off, disconnect the tape drive and it will boot fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated since I've been trying to set this server up for weeks.

Not a question of target addressing issue? (isnt 4 already used?...) or not same type of SCSI (SE-SCSI vs FW or Ultra-SCSI...)

Thanks for your reponse. I figure it can't be a SCSI type issue 'cause I have another server running the same card / tape drive configuration. How do I change or check if the target id is assigned to another device??
