I've been told that there's free software on Novell Cool Solutions that
turns your backup server HDD volume into a "fake" tape drive for use with
SBCON. What is it?

Novell Cool Solutions Tools is an enormous list of applications, and so
far (I've been browing through them for over an hour) none of them list
anything about faking a tape drive for SBCON.

We want to use SBCON to backup data to the local server volume instead of
to an external tape device.
