Folks -

After bugging HP support on this matter for  6 weeks, I finally have a valid
st.conf entry for an HP VS80 DLT1 tape drive. You'll notice other tape
drives in this entry - HP included them as well, but I'm sure you could cut
out the ones you don't want or need. I don't see a reason that this info
could not be adapted for earlier Solaris versions, but HP barely supports
Sol9.

Thanks to Darren Dunham for his helpful suggestions, especially using
modinfo and modunload to remove the st instance, and get around constant
reboots to test a new st.conf config.
