Assuming it's the box of tricks I think it is, then I know a bit about 
them. We've got two --- one run in "automatic" mode where the next tape 
is loaded when the previous one is ejected, and one run in "manual" 
mode where the tape loading is controlled by s/w on the host.

I'm using mtx to control it at the moment, which works much of the 
time. What's juke ? And where can I find it ?
