QIC-40/80 Tape Distribution

Post by JM » Wed, 12 Aug 1992 21:47:39

If anyone is interested, I may be able to handle a small number of
requests for this service:

        1) You send me a QIC-40/80 *pre-formatted* tape
           and the return postage (or stamped envelope, etc)      
        2) I put all of the tar'ed and compressed files
           you could need or want (basically - what I
           have: 0.97-pl1 boot, 0.96c root, X386, gcc-2.2.2,
           0.97 source, clients, servers, utilities, etc.) as well
           as rawrite and the boot/root images onto the
           tape and send it back.

        Free. I'm not interested in making any money, I just don't want
        to have to spend any, being a penniless college student and all ;->

        If it sounds like something you might be interested in, send
        me some mail - if you don't have the ability, you can call me
        at 716-691-7542 or snail-mail at:

        ***Note: Please *don't* send a tape without getting in touch with
                 me first. I have to be able to gauge my time with the
                 number of requests i get (if any!)

                                Good look Linuxing...

1. wanted information on QIC-40/QIC-80 tape drives.

Hello net-land,

    I am looking for information on using QIC-40 or QIC-80 tape drives (the
ones that attach to the floppy controller) on SCO Unix, SCO Xenix, and
Interactive Unix.

    I would like to know the pros and cons of using these type of drives.
Which ones you would recomend?  Which ones do you not recomend?

Thanks in advance.
