That's what the 'mt' command is for and that's why opensuse (as of

I think 'mt_st' preferred over 'mt', but I can't remember why.

Let's not forget, "tar" stands for tape archive.

And that's why, as I said, the command for manipulating tapes is
packaged with CPIO and not TAR.

mt_st is a separate package. Anyway, cpio is also an archiver, to tape
or otherwise.
