No I didn't -- it all Just Worked(TM).

Your changer is on a different SCSI ID from the tape drive, right (rather 
than on the same ID and a different LUN)?  It's odd that it's hanging on 
that inquiry.

Despite what you said about other OSs working with this setup, I'd check 
your cables and termination real well.  Have you done any fiddling with 
the SCSI options on the library?
