Since the original enquirer asked for 1600 BPI, you would go by FORMAT.1600.
All files on my site are compressed with 4.3BSD-Quasijarus compress(1). The
1600 BPI distribution consists of two tapes (assuming you are using 2400 ft
reels). The first tape contains binaries and the second tape contains sources.
The tape with binaries must be written uncompressed, and the sources can be
written compressed as they are on the FTP site to fit them on one tape. If the
machine you will use to write the tapes isn't running 4.3BSD-Quasijarus0a and
you don't have an uncompress utility that supports 4.3BSD-Quasijarus compress
-s format, you will need to download and compile my compress utility in order
to uncompress the binaries:
