i've got a QIC-150 tape drive on my SPARCstation here at work, however i think
it needs to be cleaned or something, it doesn't appear to be working correctly.
if i can get it fixed and running, i'll make tapes for you, either you supply
the tapes, or pay for the tapes, and i'd be more than happy to do it for free.
hell, i might even be able to dig up spare tapes here at work to use, we don't
use the QIC-150 format anymore (only for the 3b2 machines that run our one
product, and even then we don't often have a need to make tapes for them)
and have quite a few tapes laying around.  anyone have some good instructions
for making sun3x tapes from a Solaris machine?
