I struggled for ages with this when trying to restore a crashed SCO
Openserver hd, but without success.
Could refer to it with tar / cpio through /dev/tape, but couldn't actually
mount it in the same way as you can mount a floppy disk, cd or hd. My
understanding of this was that it doesn't have a file system per se and that
whatever was written to it was pretty much proprietary to the program that
wrote it (tar / cpio / other tape archiving program etc).
I stand to be corrected on this (and would be delighted if someone has found
a way to do it).
