I have one of these Seagate Python DAT drives. If the firmware is in a 
standard EPROM I'll pull it off. If there is a utility that can download 
it over SCSI, I could do that as well.

At some point in the future I will be selling it but it will be bundled 
with a SGI Indigo, IRIX 5.2 original media, original keyboard and mouse 
and a modified Toshiba CD-ROM.

In the meantime, it would be fun to free that firmware.
