*** Is this the reason I can't see my Sony SDT-9000 in NetBSD/pmax (1.4.2
release)? Namely, my DS5000/133 can definitely see the tape drive (cnfg 3
reports back tz5) but kernel (both generic and my own) report zilch..

Also, I am having difficulties with /sbin/dump (dumping to either a local
or a NFS disk) - it just hangs at random points in random filesystems...
