when I do a grep in the ftape dir in the kernel source and also
in the HOWTO file nothing comes up...Anyway I got the 500K gzip off sunsite
and it had MAKEDEV.ftape and that made the various devices. I wonder what
happened to them before...I'm sure I had the tape working with linux.
Maybe they somehow got lost when I copied linux from one partition to another.
