System: NetBSD 1.1_ALPHA NetBSD 1.1_ALPHA (RAEBURN) #3: Sat Dec 30 16:48:46 EST 1995 i386


Some time ago, in the early days of the SCSI driver under NetBSD (or
was it 386BSD then?) I got a Tandberg 3600 tape drive, which wouldn't
work with *BSD or with SunOS.  Tandberg replaced the firmware with
something that would work on SunOS, and I got it to work on BSD too.
It identifies itself as an Archive Viper drive, but still responds on
all LUNs.  So NetBSD thinks it has lots of tape drives attached....


Buy one of these tape drives and get Tandberg to install the
non-standard firmware.
