After ruling out the hardware we were getting to that. ;-)
That's one of the reasons I asked if /dev/st0 was auto generated or put
in by hand. If it is missing SCSI support then I'm not very impressed
that the system puts non-applicable entries in the device tree
regardless of if the system currently has the capability to support
such entries or not. That's just bloody lazy.
And yes Kudzu is awful, it's probably the first thing on my list to hit
with chkconfig the moment I login to a new box.
