Original message:

        in a Sparc Station 2, using 4.1.2, I'm trying to load files that was stored
in a 720k diskette using tar command from a Xenix machine. I'm reading the man
pages about tar but I can't find anything that can help me.

Is it possible ?

To see the files: tar -tvf /dev/rfd0

To load the files: dd if=/dev/rfd0 of=filename bs=9k conv=noerror

Many thanks to:
