Re: [K12OSN] Backup

Hi all,

I notice AMANDA hasn't been mentioned recently.

It does almost exactly the same thing as described below, except you
don't have to create a SAMBA share. 

I didn't get to implement AMANDA, but I know others on the list have.
>From my reading I understand AMANDA works well from a separate "backup"
