reinitialize scsi devices?



Hello all;

Is there a way to force the kernel to reinitialize the scsi devices
without rebooting? For some reason 2.2.14 decided to ignore my tape
drive on the last reboot and it does not see it (it's not in
proc/scsi/*). I was curious if there is a way to get the kernel to
see the tape drive without rebooting (such an annoyance! :)
