Do an eBay (or other online auction) search for Backup Exec, specifically the '98 version. You should be able to find it for $30 or under.

That was the software that came with those drives for 98, and the NT version for NT, etc.

Hardware was the same, I seem to remember, just the software that was different per OS.

You might even find that software at a computer recycler for cheap or almost free.
