Token Ring attached would be nice. There is only one option I know of to do this, and it will only work on a system with at least one bus expansion unit. I believe Rochester has an RPQ to support this. You will need to have a fibre optic link between the two buildings, and they must be reasonably close. You place a bus expansion rack/tower in the second building, connected via the fibre optic bus back to the first building, and install a Tape IOP card in the rack/tower of the second building. Then you connect your additional tape drive to that. -- ... Neil Palmer AS/400~~~~~ ... NxTrend Technology -Canada ____________ ___ ~ ... Thornhill, Ontario, Canada |OOOOOOOOOO| ________ o|__||= ...
