Default Backup : Adaptec AHA-2944UW / AIC-7884U SCSI adapter & HP Q1523A tape reader

Hi,

I'm new in SCSI adapter and backup stuff. For my SOHO needs, I want to setup backup on tape. A friend gave
me 3 things to put in my regular x86 PC running Ubuntu Server 8.10 x86_64 / 2.6.27-16 :
- a PCI SCSI Adaptec AHA-2944UW / AIC-7884U SCSI adapter [1]
- a SCSI cable (I guess it works fine)
- a HP StorageWorks DAT 72e tape drive [2]

I've plugged the PCI card in my PC, connected the cable, power on the tape drive and booted my linux. After
a long SCSI scan, grub came, ubuntu started to boot and then, lock on "loading hardware modules" or
something similar and then, display [FAILED]. Once it was booted, I've tried some basic command found
here [3] without success :
# mt -f /dev/st0 rewind
mt: /dev/st0: rmtopen failed: No such file or directory

I guess I don't have the right module loaded. HP provides diagnostic tools, are they useful? They don't
even provide a .deb... I've grab a .rpm and rpm2cpio'ed it, it contains a bunch of binaries but nothing who
looks like a driver.
I've also downloaded a "Linux Driver Source Code" from the Adaptec website
(aic7Yxx-2.0.26-6.3.11-linux-2.6.tgz) : no explication at all how to compile it, there is a Makefile but
make failes :
# make
make: *** No rule to make target `/aic7xxx_seq.h', needed by `/aic7xxx_core.o'. Stop.

Any ideas is welcome!

My first two items without knowing allot about this hardware:

1) alien can be used to convert a rpm -> deb for installation
sudo apt-get install alien
2) the error posted for the make file leads me to think there is a
config/configure or the likes script you need to run prior to make.
Perhpas look through any provided docs on the proper linux installation
