I've been using tar to back-up my file system to my tape drive using the 
following command
  tar -cvf /dev/sa0 /home /etc
  which works fine.
  Whenever i run the command
  tar -tvf /dev/sa0
  the system usualy lists a few file then stops with the error
  tar: Unrecognised archive format: Inappropriate file type or format
  I'm using the latest RC6.2
  I've never had this problem before.......
