New Backup Variation

We have a 386 running 386/ix, and across the room a Mac IIcx.  We need
new backup hardware for both.  I was wondering if we could get just one
(SCSI?) tape drive (probably one of those 2Gb 8mm thingies), switch it
back and forth, and back 'em both up.

I imagine that there must be others in the same boat.  So if people
using such a beast on either 386/ix or Mac will drop me a line, I'll
post the results, if there are any and they're interesting.

Cheers, Tim Bray, Open Text Systems
