Is this drive known to be good? Can you low-level/verify it? At what
point are you seeing this error?
>defbootstr link="ciss ad160" hd=Sdsk Sdsk=ciss0 Stp=ad160(1,0,2,0)
I've not seen this syntax before - What is it supposed to do?

IIRC, in 5.0.6 the ad160 driver is built-in (although you may want to
load a newer one, as a few posts here indicate there may be issues on
some hardware with the embedded ad160 driver), so my first shot would
be something along the lines of
defbootstr link=ciss Sdsk=ciss(0,0,0,0) Srom=wd(X,X,0,0)
(adjust the X's to meet your system's config)
You can load whichever ad160 driver you want _after_ the system loads,
then create your tape device.
