I've seen at least one complaint that the RH 2.6.11 FC _SMP_ kernel
will fail to recognize a SCSI tape drive, but that the UP kernel will

I don't know if that is vanilla kernel issue, or RH specific.

If you are currently testing with a SMP kernel, you might want to try
booting a UP kernel and see if it works.
