Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately, it didn't work.

I assume that you meant /dev/rst0 since I was talking about the
streaming tape.  I get a "Device not configured" message, just like
when I try to tar or dd to it if the tape drive wasn't on when I
booted.  That's the problem that I'm trying to solve.

After thinking about /dev/sd0, I decided that it _shouldn't_ do any
harm to try the above command on that device.  Bad decision.  It
crashed the machine. :-(

Have you any other suggestions for me?
