How do I access my dat tape drive
on my UNIX box?

I need to know the way to write files to it
and how to recover them. I am running Solaris 8.

Should I just use tar and write to the device?
how do I determine the device name. What is the
best way.

How do I control the tape rewind and forward
etc.

Thanks.
