  We (the software group) are looking for suggestions for:

	* Multibus controllers for 9-track tape drives
	* 9 track tape drives for a meduim size multibus UNIX box.

that they (the hardware group) didn't specify when designing our machine
(the yet-to-be-released SCI 2000).  I've used a Cipher front-loading tape
drive a while ago, but I remember it had problems with small reels.  Are
there any vendors that supply device drivers for their controllers?  Any
advice welcome.

				As they say, Thanks in advance.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
