This one was obviously too easy for my overly complex head. I confess
I thought there was something special/different about the SunOS boot tapes.

I did receive three types of replies so far.
1. Use tcopy (overall favorite)
2. Use dd if=input of=output
and 3. One fellow sent me a copy of a tape copy program he uses, tputil.
Also apparently there is aprogram available through archie called copytape.
Thanks again for the help. - Gary
