I was a bit shocked at how much they seem to go for on ebay. Anyways,
we've got a 3490 SCSI drive and 3480 + 3490 drive on an S/390 I might be
able to get someone to write a tape on for me. As long as I'm working
at Purdue, this shouldn't be a problem.
Still, It seems like the PCI (or MCA or whatever) card is going to be
more useful for me until I can get the thing set up in a real location.
I'm trying to work on that right now.
