[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

[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.
