Michael,

In the online manual: http://www.bacula.org/html-manual/running.html
it's default behaviour is to backup to disk volume's (just big files on a
filesystem). You have to do some extra config to backup to tape (as I
did).

This chapter in the bacula manual is to get you familiar with bacula
(naming, config etc) and do a basic backup and restore. Just give it try.
It pretty striaght forward to get it running from the rpm's or source
install.
