I do not know that kind of tape drive. I was using exabytes SCSI tapes myself and they can easily be used by "mt". for storing data I was using tar and might nowadays use afio because of its file-by-file compression which makes recovery in the case of read errors much easier.
The scsi tape device would be /dev/st0 or something similar.
I just found some basic usage on: http://nic.phys.ethz.ch/readme/80
If your drive is not actually a SCSI drive it might still be mapped to a scsi drive (and an /dev/stX device). Check your /var/log/dmesg if the drive is recognised and which device it gets assigned.
