Thanks a lot. It worked!!! I tried the command kldload trm on the
command line  and in the log , I could see the driver being loaded. I
then added the entry in /etc/bootloader.conf file and the driver was 
detected after rebooting.

I also realised that the tape drive was functional straight away. There
was not need for any other driver for the tape drive.

Thanks again

I do not know exactly if FreeBSD 4.x has a trm module, but you might
first try to do 
kldload trm
If that does work (i.e. print some success messages), you can add
to your /boot/loader.conf file to have the trm module loaded at boot

If the trm.ko module is not available, yes, you need to recompile your
kernel as described in the handbook.
