The network interface is not up in single user mode, so it is not possible to connect to any remote device

While the network isn't brought up in single user mode you can 'ifconfig' the interface up manually and set data in resolv.conf and/or set a defualt route (if needed). This will allow access to the remote tape.

If you make the box with tape drive as a boot/installation server, the client(s) can boot up in single
user mode, and restore the system from the tape backup. (It works for me!)
