CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDETAPE: Include IDE/ATAPI TAPE support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDETAPE has multiple definitions:

Include IDE/ATAPI TAPE support (EXPERIMENTAL) found in drivers/ide/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDETAPE:

Help text

If you have an IDE tape drive using the ATAPI protocol, say Y. ATAPI is a newer protocol used by IDE tape and CD-ROM drives, similar to the SCSI protocol. If you have an SCSI tape drive however, you can say N here.

You should also say Y if you have an OnStream DI-30 tape drive; this will not work with the SCSI protocol, until there is support for the SC-30 and SC-50 versions.

If you say Y here, the tape drive will be identified at boot time along with other IDE devices, as "hdb" or "hdc", or something similar, and will be mapped to a character device such as "ht0" (check the boot messages with dmesg). Be sure to consult the drivers/ide/ide-tape.c and Documentation/ide.txt files for usage information.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ide-tape.
