Correct, thats a udev thingy. Here is a nice FAQ:
You could potentially do likewise with devlabel, although I've never
tried for a tape library.

Oh here we go - Flamefest 2006 :-0
I think udev is only in RHEL5, but I've never checked.

You can upgrade for "free" to RHEL4 with the same RHN subscription
number / login as that for RHEL2.1 / RHEL3 / 4 / 5 and so on. (Mail me

Fedora is RHEL's testing ground. Once things stop blowing up, it goes
