I have a DLT tape with some files that I would like to restore using NT Backup. Can any one explain the steps (in details) that I have to follow to restore this data on my server?

Go to Backup Utility – go to Restore and Manage Media – go to DLT unit subfolder
Insert the media and one of the back-up will became online.
Browse for the file you needed and select it.
Select where to restore and click Start Restore.

Do I need to catalog the tape or anything like that?

Also can anyone explain why do we might need to catalog a tape before restoring the data?

Only if the tape is made on another server and is not cataloged yet.

Catalog means that the backup program looks to the tape and extracts the folder and file information of the back-up data.

The backup was taken by some one else. How can I tell if the tape has been catalog or not?

If the tape is catalog you will find it under Restore and Manage Media tab and you have the possibility to browse the tape.
