Old backup system? "man st" claims that (a) this was a SCSI tape; and
(b) this has been deprecated in favour of the sa(4) driver.

1. Ensure your /dev/sa0 &co. device files exist.
2. Update your backup program, or specify the correct device file for it
to use
3. At a pinch, if your backup program doesn't grok sa, you might create
symlinks from /dev/st to /dev/sa but there's no guarantee that any
special ioctls will work across both devices.
