 * Use "tcopy" in /usr/ucb to copy tapes.
    If you have only one tape driver, get "copytape" to
    do it. Use "archie" to search where to find it.

 * about make "bootable" tape,
    all answers I got is to duplicate the install tape
    from Sun. Besides use "tcopy", "copytape", you can also
    use "dd" to copy all the savesets of the tape.
