Ick.  Floppy-tape--slow and unreliable.

Surely the SCO box must be capable (or already have) a SCSI controller to
hang a DLT or DAT from!  If you're going to be spending your valuable time,
might as well use something that's reasonably fast and has read-after-write
verification.  Since SCSI tape is a pretty well standardized item, it
should work okay with a minimum of fiddling.

Cheers,
Chuck
