Doesn't matter if the st module is loaded or not. If it's a SCSI
tape drive, and if it's connected to your SCSI controller, and if
the SCSI driver for your SCSI controller is loaded, the tape drive
will show up as a SCSI device.

Does your SCSI controller have a BIOS? Does the tape drive show
up in the SCSI bios?
