Had flu, sorry for wait...
The Fedora is 2.4 kernel which I will migrate to today and if this
doesn't solve my probs. I will swap my scsi controller.  If I remove my
tape, what should I do with it?  (don't be rude)

I have been obsessed with backups since the time when I lost 2/3 of a
book and had to spend eternity recreating.  Any 'better' removable
storage device suggestions are welcome.  Bearing in mind it needs to
hold ~15Gb and a removable hd isn't feasible.
