9-track BOT/EOT markers?

Hey all --
Got myself an HP 7980S 9-track drive (always wanted a 9-track drive...)
and accidentally mangled my one and only 9-track tape just after the BOT
marker (not sure what caused it, maybe the drive needs a bit of
adjustment...). So I have two questions: Where can I find a reasonable
replacement for the marker, and where does it go? I see the sense foil
on the part of the tape that got mangled, but I don't know what side of
the tape it was originally on...
P.S. The magical tape autoloading thing this drive does is the coolest
thing I've seen in a long time :).
