Using Your DDS Drive
Your DDS-DC Drive Configuration
Your HP-UX operating system comes with preconfigured device files and drivers. If you
use these preconfigured device files and drivers, you won't need to configure your
DDS-DC drive with the operating system.
To find out more about creating and using device files, see the owner's guide that came
with your system.
