SCSI Tape Woes

OK, I've got a REAL problem here and would REALLY appreciate some
Background: A Wyse 3225-150T running Interactive UNIX 2.0.2
150 Megabyte ESDI (Micropolis, I think) hard disk
150 Megabyte SCSI (Archive QIC36) Tape
SC402 Archive Tape Controller
I install the system software, and kernal configuration
software and run kconfig. I select the high performance
disk driver (hpdd) option.
I tell the system that the hard disk controller is a ESDI,
and that I have a SCSI Host Adaptor (with tape) also attached.
The system wants to know if it's either an Future Domain or
Since it's neither...
Do I have to junk the Archive SC402 controller and get either
a Future Domain or Adaptec controller?
Will an Adaptec run an Archive QIC36 150 megabyte tape unit?
(And how much does one cost??)
Will I have any other problems getting this configuration to
work??? (And, am I missing something simple somewhere???)
Please, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
