Like frhelgeson said, please mention your card brand and also the DOS program you want to use for accessing the tape streamer.

In DOS usually you load the ASPI driver for the scsi card and nothing more.  The backup application knows how to talk ASPI and finds the tape streamer itself.

For example, if you have a NCR810 scsi controller (very popular) you load in CONFIG.SYS :
devicehigh=c:\ncr\aspi8xx.sys
for a cdrom device that is connected to this controller you lthen load:
devicehigh=c:\ncr\symcd.sys /d:BTCD00
and for a HP scanner :
DEVICE=C:\DESKSCAN\SJIIX.SYS
but for a tape streamer you load nothing at all.  DOS Central Point backup for example, knows about ASPI, recognises the aspi8xx driver and communicates directly through aspi with the streamer.
