Description newsham 1999-06-10 12:35:24 UTC
(this is a suggestion, not a bug, per se)

The rescue disk for 6.0 lacks tape support (in particular,
atapi tape support).  I would think that restoring from
tape would be a common/useful rescue activity.  It would
be nice if the kernel shipped with the rescue/boot disk
supported atapi tape drives in the future.

This recommendation has been forwarded to a developer for further
consideration.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-10 20:01:59 UTC
This has been added to a list of feature requests for future releases.
