If you have a /dev/st0, the next question is why that error message says you don't. It's likely a permissions thing. I don't have a tape backup machine, so I don't know much about the command set or how it is run, but can you run it as root? Does the error change? -- Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
