Use the ct driver bootstring to override the default tape configuration included on the SCO OpenServer tape cartridge distribution. It is intended for use during installation and does not replace the functions of the Hardware/Kernel Manager or mkdev tape described in ``Installing a tape drive''. If you later run the Hardware/Kernel Manager or mkdev tape to add a cartridge tape drive, you are prompted as to whether you wish to modify the current tape bootstring, retain it, or remove it entirely.
The ct bootstring has the general format:
Boot:When you invoke the tape bootstring manually, you must specify hd(40)unix or fd(64)unix, not just unix. The tape bootstring is not checked until the driver is initialized. If the configuration information supplied in the bootstring appears to be invalid (for example, the controller named in the bootstring is not supported), then a warning message is printed, and the tape driver ignores the bootstring and uses the default configuration.
