There's plenty of SCSI 9-track drives.. Overland data made a few (we
have one of those at work), DEC's TSZ07 is another, Sun made/rebadged
one, and even IBM sold one (for attachment to RS/6000s I believe).
You should have no problem using them with a modern system - I've used
them with Linux, and at work, we've used ours hanging off an Ultra 5
running Solaris 8.
