9. Frequently Asked Questions


This is the literal inclusion of the Ftape Frequently Asked questions collection which is maintained by Johan De Wit <> and which may be viewed on the web at As Linuxdoc SGML doesn't include sub-sub-sections into the table of contents, I have prepended the word FAQ to the sections of the original FAQ document.

This FAQ collection might be slightly out of data as it was collected while version 3.04d of the ftape driver was the newest one. If any answer given in the FAQ contradicts any other statement of this HOWTO, then please disregard the answer in the FAQ and drop me (<>) as well as the maintainer of the Ftape-FAQ (Johan De Wit <>) a note

You might encounter references to the following addresses while reading this document:

There is surely quite a lot missing. Please feel free to improve this FAQ. The preferred way of doing this is to post to the Ftape Mailing List in case you have a question that isn't answered here.

Also, if you are already reading the list regularly and have the impression that some questions occur again and again, feel free to send that question and possibly an answer in the format indicated below to the maintainer of the Ftape FAQ AND to Ftape Mailing List.

If you make FAQ related postings, then please DON'T FORGET to prepend the word "[FAQ]" to the subject of your posting. Please don't add the word "FAQ" to the subject if you post something that isn't related to the FAQ.

That's all for now.

Claus-Justus Heine.
