Say I insert the Monday Cartridge - it automatically mounts as /rd1000

then if i eject the Cartridge and put the Wednesday cartridge in, it is
visible as /dev/sdb but does not use the assigned mount point of /rd1000

I have just been tinkering around with commands on the server and the
following seemed to work

#insert cartridge
mount /dev/sdb1 /rd1000
#check cartridge
cd /rd1000
ls {which lists the file system ok!}

I can then write information to the tape

to eject the cartridge i have to

#unmount cartridge
umount -f /rd1000
#eject catridge
eject /dev/sdb

I suppose I could add them to the top and bottom of my .sh script and get
the script to run as a cron on the days I need it to.
