that's a standard DDS-3 tape, right? It should work well under Linux,
provided you have a SCSI PCI card and build your kernel with SCSI and
SCSI tape support. The device name is /dev/st0 for the 'rewind-on-close'
device and /dev/nst0 for the 'no-rewind-on-close' device (similar to
/dev/tape and /dev/nrtape under Irix). Look at /proc/scsi/scsi - the
device should be listed there.
