Could you share your DOS code with me too? I just assembled the hardware for
that: a self loading HP88780B SCSI-1 9-track Tape Drive, a vintage DolchPac
65 PC that can multi boot XP, Win98 and DOS fitted with an old SCSI-1 card.
And I am reading the SCSI protocol book in the evenings ;-). Your DOS SCSI
tape software and source would give me a prodigious head start...
I also have Pertec-interfaced Overland Data tape drive, that will be step 2.
This is a more straightforward interface.
And an HP-IB interfaced HP7970E tape drive waiting in the wings.
