        My setup (dump -> USB 2) processes 22.8 Gbytes in a hair over 5
        The average throughput is ~2 myytes/sec ... which is _way_
slower than it should be.  (The problem has not been reporduced on
other machines.)
        I'd prefer to be running of the 80 mbyte/sec LVD SCSI card.
However, that configuration (tape drive, cartridges, cables) would
start at $1500 and up.  This has so far cost less than $200, with an
incremental cost of < $50 per week of backup.
