Device 2 is the second tape drive only on the PET. On later models, it 
is RS-232 and cannot accept LOAD/SAVE (I wonder why).

If you only changed the default device from 1 (first tape) to 8, LOAD 

I guess you would want to use some magic file name (such as '-' in the 
original post), so that it does not load and start anything from a 
random disk that happens to be in the drive.
