MANY thanks for your patient help.

Summary: SCSI card recognized (cheers heard as far
as the neighbors), 2 devices found, cannot
seem to mount.

There is a hard drive (formatted for windows2000, sorry),
HPt20 drive, and a Yamaha 4x4x16 tape drive on the chain.
It looks like the first two were detected, but could not
figure out how to mount. Mounting this particular hard
drive is not a big issue as today
I am adding a second (new, empty) hard drive that will be dedicated to LINUX. When I can mount this, I would like
to move the root (not boot)
over to this hard drive--I have started
to study your (coffee stained) HOWTO on this subject.
 
At the very least,
I will have a user directory on this external drive.

I also tried
cd /dev
./MAKEDEV st0 (should I have used sd--something?).

Anyway, if there were a mouse with lots of LINUX
experience in the corner of my room, I'm sure he would
be selling tickets for a comedy show --
to witness my "experiences" (i.e. the response
to "make all" was cc: not recognized! - to conserve disk
space, I had not installed the C-compiler).

fstab and the dmesg are reproduced below.
