You should be able to get an Iomega 700-insider for less than $150. Holds
350MB uncompressed, uses QIC3010 tapes (about $15/each). I don't know
if they have a floppy-controlled version of their Ditto 1600. Holds 800MB
and you can probably get it for $150 or so. It uses Travan TR-1 cartridges
and I believe it can also sprechen ze QIC2010 and QIC3010 cartridges.

Why... Linux, of course! :)

Actually, taper works great for me. It lets me have multiple volumes on one
tape. I'd like to see it support things like differential backups, though.
