SCSI Tape drives on Linux


Do any of you have experience in using SCSI tape drives on Linux?

a) What additional hardware is needed for the tape drive to work, if the
kernel has SCSI support and has SCSI devices already connected?
b) How do you go about installing/configuring the drive, assuming we have
the 'insmod st' done?
c) Are tar/taper the only software needed/available for backup/recovery
with tapes on Linux ?
d) How is the reliability vis-a-vis on Windows ?
e) Any tips on compatibility (RHL hardware compatibility list just says
"most scsi tape drives" supported)?
