Ah, you too Mark?
I've just found the 'unstable' repositories for the debian system I 
setup yesterday so am 'apt-get install backuppc' as I type...
I do find the documentation rather daunting on setting up host and 
Any chance you could wiki your work? I'll be logging my activities as 
well... hopefully we can reduce the fear the documentation instills.
