: These people who are giving you suggestions are out of their mind. The
: simplest, cheapest and most effective backup method is the tape drive.
: I suggest the Iomega Ditto 3200. It can store 1,700 megs uncompressed
: or 3,200 megs compressed on a single TR3 Data Tape. The unit sells for
: under $300.00, and comes complete with a Ditto Dash Accelerator card
: that slides in an empty ISA slot. You can run the Tape backup off of
: your exsisting floppy drive controller, or for much faster transfer
: rates you can install this accelerator card (comes with the 3200) and
: transfer your data much faster. Most other tape drives you have to
: purchace the accelerator card seperately. I have owned my Ditto 3200
: for 6 months now, and backing up my hard drive is extremely easy and
: very fast compared to other tape backup systems.
How does one use this sucker in Linux (with the acceleration card)? I
suppose ftape for using it from the floppy controller...
If you can lead it to water and force it to drink, it isn't a horse.
