This may be not exactly NetBSD... but here goes.

What are the _proper_ parameters for 'dump' for a TK50?  I'm referring to 
the 'bds' flags:  blocking factor, density, size.

I just realized I think I've been doing backups with the 'dump' defaults, 
which I think are pretty horrible (at least, they are in other BSD systems).
I'd like to pack those tapes if I could... I know they're supposed to 
hold 91Mb or so...
