60  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
61   <B>A: </B>Yes. Use '-Ow &lt;speed&gt; &lt;device&gt;' to make it work.</P>
62  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
63   <A NAME="AEN703"></A><B>Q: </B>Does Mondo support tape drives?</P>
64  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
65   <B>A: </B>Yes. See above.</P>

67   <A NAME="AEN708"></A><B>Q: </B>Does Mondo support <B>my</B> tape drive?</P>
68  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
69   <B>A: </B>If your tape drive and its firmware and the kernel-level
70   driver support fopen(), fread(), fwrite() and fclose() - standard C
71   library calls - then yes, Mondo should support it. If not, well, you
72   need a refund. :) Mondo plays nicely with any sane, sensible drives.
73   That's most of them, by the way. :) If your drive doesn't play nicely
74   with Mondo then you may try tinkering with setblksize and defblksize
75   using 'mt', or tweaking Mondo's block size by recompiling it with
76   make INTTAPE=4096 or INTTAPE=8192 or something. Other than that, you
77   need a priest or a refund.</P>

112   seconds and then press Enter to acknowledge insertion of the next CD.
113   Your laptop is on crack and is sucking a little too hard on the pipe.</P>
114  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
115   <A NAME="AEN727"></A><B>Q: </B>Does Mondo support RAID?</P>
116  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
117   <B>A: </B>Yes. You may backup and restore RAID systems. You may also
118   backup a non-RAID system and restore as RAID (or vice versa) by using
119   the mountlist editor to edit your RAID and non-RAID partitions and
120   their settings. Mondo will do the partitioning and formatting for you.</P>

146   therefore so will Mondo.</P>
