HP DAT drives generally work ok with FreeBSD - we have a DAT40 [external]
and DAT24 [external] on a box here, both work fine... They appear as
standard SCSI tape drives...
The one-touch recovery button stuff, AFAIK won't work - it's dependant on
HP drivers & software under windows etc...
Having seen the mess it made of a friends "one touch recovery" under
Windows, I'm not too keen to see that working under Unix anyway :-)
