What do you mean by "sharing" ?
Others that replied already tink of it as installing some kind of hardware
switch to change over to another host which has to be connected to that
switch wth the same technology as the drives uses ...
Depending on the model of 7208 I think it's an Exabyte 8505XL, there
are even drivers for NT4 available from www.exabyte.com.
But: there is still another possibility: do it with software !
As a quick hack : you could copy PC Server data to an IFS directory
and SAV this thing to an AS/400 tape (do an xcopy-routine in a .BAT
and schedule on the pc-server with AT commands)
More sophisticated would be to use BRMS and the remote agents to collect
data from different platforms across the network (I am not current of the
options available at the moment, but I saw this working ...)

HTH, and regards from germany, Philipp Rusch
