I have been backing up using dump and it works great!

However I have not had to perform a restore....

I suddenly have to perform a restore of a single file.  The dumps done in
three parts on a tape using nrst0.  I have successfully been able to do a
>restore -i -f /dev/nrst0
and can look at the directory (ls), but that is only the first dump which is

The 2nd dump on the tape is /var (it's own partition) and the man page
doesn't give any obvious clues as to how to forward the tape to the point on
the tape where that dump starts.

Any words of wisdom?
