Ooh, that reminds me of my TK50 troubles (Getting Ultrix off TK50s and onto a
DECstation with only a VAX with a TK50 drive and NetBSD). Would a dd from such
a cartridge onto a HD work? I'm generally ignorant about TK50s and how they
work. They're bootable tapes, aren't they?

En ligne avec Thor 2.6a.
