[SunHELP] redhat 5.5 will not build tape device files

Trying to install an ibm fiber tape drive onto $work new remote netbackup server.
IBM driver works with IBM software - builds the /dev/IBMtape files correctly.
But there are no /dev/stxxxx or /dev/nstxxxx device files being built.
The $work unix folks called Redhat - got no help.
Symantec tried to help - but since the Redhat o/s doesn't have its /dev files right - they can't get past that.
MAKEDEV fills up the /dev directory with all these pretty filenames that don't work or seem to be linked to anything.
Any Redhat gurus out there run into this before?
Any ideas I can pass to the $work remote unix folks appreciated.
