I want to get a tape drive for my Linux system.
Will a ditto internal drive work with Linux ?  I'm thing about maybe the 2GB or 3.2GB versions.
If not what tape drive should I get; what do you recommend ?
Thanks for you help

The Ditto tape is not supported, somebody was making an effort to understand how the interface works, but last time I checked no support has been developed (1 month ago).

If you have a SCSI card you can use most SCSI tape devices, also some IDE tapes and even floppy-interfaced tapes are supported.

  Have a look in the hardware compatibility list (there should be pointers in any of:
www.linux.org
www.redhat.com
www.cdrom.com)

  Don't get any tape before checking if it is compatible with Linux!
