Have you looked at the Ftape HowTo (http://www.redhat.com/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/Ftape-HOWTO.html) or the Ftape homepage (http://www.instmath.rwth-aachen.de/~heine/ftape/)? There's lots of info there...

Ftape is already configured ( to the best that I can be sure with out using it)  I'm trying to get linux to see the unit , which it must do before I can test the ftape

The initial setup with RH probably won't configure the drive properly. Try recompiling the kernal (2.2.14) and set the appropriate devices in the configuration. If you have problems with the device set at module form use monolithic (this problem seems to occur on cdroms as well). Does the bootup identify the device (at bootup a list of all the ide devices is shown on screen with corresponding /dev/hd?).

I think friebele has something there, I just looked at the std kernel config and I don't think it includes support for ftape devs. I'd go with the 2.2.12-20 kernel that is distributed with RedHat 6.1 though. It's on your OS CD and you can add the sources with rpm. If you've never built a kernel before you'll want to read the kernel howto (http://www.redhat.com/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html)
