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.......
