The essential part of dmesg says like this -
Kernelized RAIDframe activated
scsibus0: waiting 2 seconds for devices to settle...
atapibus0 at atabus2: 2 targets
st0 at atapibus0 drive 0: <Seagate STT20000A, , 8A51> tape removable
st0: drive empty
st0: 32-bit data port
st0: drive supports PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2
st0(viaide1:0:0): using PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2 (using DMA)
atapibus1 at atabus3: 2 targets
I will take a look att the bios also and see if I can get some 
clue from there.
