Is there anyone using trakker in a Linux box? I've the
drive but I have no idea on how to use it to backup
a linux partition...

This is a crude approach, but I use a 10 megabyte DOS partition
for my Linux backups: I tar and gzip my home directory, and any
new packages that I load to the DOS partition.  Everytime I do
a DOS tape backup, my important Linux stuff goes on the tape also...
