Thanks to all who replied to my last problem, I am now at the point of copying
the miniroot into the swap partition but have run into a further problem. The
commands used were as follows:

mt -f /dev/nrst0 rewind
mt -f /dev/nrst0 fsf 2
dd bs=32k if=/dev/nrst0 of=/dev/rsd0b

However this bombs out with the following messages and I can go no further with
the install.

st0(si0:4:0) no data found, requested size: 64 (decimal) data = 34   00   00
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes transferred in 1 secs (0 bytes/sec)

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I also get the following message in the middle of booting up from the boot tape,
although it does not seem to cause a problem, can anyone tell me what causes it?

getbyte error, target never set REQ.

thanks to anyone who replies
