id 6, parity on, they mount fine from debian. One is a Sanyo CDR-h94smv
and the other is a plextor (which I'm told work 100%). (Perhaps there are
settings I'm missing?)

it is giving bad magic number.... is it possiblew that my archive isn't quite
And how would I go about generating an archive on a non-solaris *nix box that
would work- if this is the problem.

I've thought that, if the archive is okay, I could put it on a hard drive.
would a dd of the image be installable?

I know I'm full of wuestions, but- I'm also looking for 150 meg tapes......

Thanks again,
