Most likley the reason you never got it to work is because you either  
tried to boot off a QIC-150 drive and your boot ROMs are too old  
(prior to rev. 2.8) to do it, OR, because you were booting off a  
QIC-24 drive (which all Sun-3s can boot from) but wrote the tape in a  
QIC-150 (or newer) drive. You can only write a QIC-24 tape in a  
QIC-24 drive.
