Amanda backup: Labeling Tapes

Hi Group, I tried to contact the amanda-user mailinglist first, but that
does not seem to be on-line. Hope this is no too off-topic...
I was hoping for some Debian-amanda user who might be able to give me a

Dear Group, I feel that I have come quite far in setting up amanda on my
Debian/GNU Linux 2.2 system. I seem to be able to connect from client to
server, access the tape drive (SCSI /dev/nst0) and such.

However, since I am still testing I have not yet set up the crontab
entry but would like to supply some commands manually.

However, as soon as I perform a dump, I get an email asking for:
a new tape.
I have tried amlabel to write all kinds of labels. This seems to work but
I have not found a way to get amanda to accept it.
I have not been able to find in the documentation how to go about this,
other than (from the Howto):

 Run amlabel to label all the tapes needed according to your needs.

Can anyone point me in the proper direction? Much appreciated.
