[SunHELP] AIT3 Drive install problem

I'm attempting to install a SDX700C Sony AIT3 drive on my SUN box 250
running Solaris 8. I trying to use a Qlogic QLA10162 Ultra3 LVD/SE SCSI PCI
controller from SUN. I've tried different configs but right now I have the
AIT drive as target 0. Nothing else on that SCSI chain.  
When I do a probe-scsi-all I see the controller and the drive attached to
the card. I see the drive at target 0, listed on LUN 0, 8, 10, 18. I thought
four seperate times looked strange, but...
If I do a test /pci at 1f,4000/pci at 4/scsi at 4 it responds OK. Which leads me to
believe it sees the drive. 
When I did the boot -r I see no evidence that the OS sees the controller or
the tapedrive. Nothing in the logs refer to anything at scsi at 4.  
My st.conf looks like this:
"SONY    SDX-700C", "Sony AIT3 8mm", "SONY_AIT";
SONY_AIT = 1, 0x36, 0, 0x1d639, 4, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00,0;
name="st" class="scsi"
        target=0 lun=0;
name="st" class="scsi"
        target=0 lun=1;
name="st" class="scsi"
        target=0 lun=8;
name="st" class="scsi"
        target=0 lun=10;
name="st" class="scsi"
        target=0 lun=18;

When I do a drvconfig && tapes I get nothing in /dev/rmt/. No tape devices. 
My message file has no errors or any indication it's even trying to install
a drive. 
Please help if you can. What am I doing wrong?? Do I need a seperate driver
for the scsi controller? The qlogic website had no info about my card. I've
never had this much trouble with a scsi card and tape drive.
