It's been a while since I've used an IDE tape drive under Linux, but I
suspect the current preferred method is to access the tape using SCSI
emulation (the same stuff that's used for IDE CD burners & for CD
ripping); in which case, /dev/nst0 (or /dev/st0, pick your poison) is
probably still the correct identifier.
