dos background to unix admin.... any advise?/

is it possible to see what is in a dds tape?
like in dos, we can write dir a: to see the contents of it?


PS : actually, i came from a DOS background. so most of the time, i will try to relate unix to dos. of course, dos never came close to unix. but unix is like many instances of dos running, can i say that?

anyway, what should i be beware when doing this dos to unix knowledge transfer?
