mkdev tape - recompiling kernel error

On an hp Netserver Lc3 server (SCO 5.0.5) I'm trying to reconfigure the backup device using "mkdev tape" but at the end of the wizard I'm returned the following "recompiling kernel error"

"You must create a new kernel to effect the driver change you specified. 
Do you wish to create a new kernel now? (y/n) y 
       The UNIX Operating System will now be rebuilt.
       This will take a few minutes.  Please wait. 
       Root for this system build is /

i386ld fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to unix 
ERROR: Can not link-edit unix

Could you help me please how to exceed this error?

Got something to add? Send me email.
