Hello list,

We are in the process of implementing a new VTL and have run into a
little issue.  The data is being written to the tapes in 32k blocks, but
for optimal performance we need to have the block size increased to 512k
blocks.  We have not been able to find how this change can be
accomplished.  The devices specific files are /dev/mt0 and up.  The
library being emulated is a Quantum P3000 (DLT drives).  Any help is
