Can't read file off of mksysb tape


I have a mksysb tape and want to read a directory from the tape.  I
skipped past the first three records and then tried this command:

   tar -xvf/dev/rmt0 /home/user_name

The rest of the tape was read, but I did not get the files.


The files are listed on the tape in relative pathname format.  Try
this command:

    tar -xvf/dev/rmt0 ./home/user_name

Make sure you are in the / directory when you issue this command, as
it is a relative pathname.
