I have Retrospect windows server for the backup system. And I have  linux 
client software is installed on a PE 4600 with a DLTtape drive running 
RedHat 9. I would like to take backups to the the tape drive on the PE 4600 
from the windows machine having Retrospect server version installed. It 
would be easy if I could mount the tape drive to some place like 
/mnt/tapedrive but as far as I know its not possible to mount the tape 
drive. If there is any way to do this or any work around, please let me know.
