I would like to see a hack where someone can tell me how to create a scsi tape device driver that will let me do basic tape functions against an AIT-style tape drive.

I thought I'd find a raw scsi tape device at /dev/rst0 but there is nothing there and no way that I know of to run the command "mknod" to create an appropriate /dev entry... perhaps it is all netinfo-based logic but I just don't know.

If anyone has a hack that allows a scsi tape device to be access on OS X, I would really like to know.
