Really, Huck, I didn't do anything. I read the documentation, line by
line, and filled in the values for my network. The vast majority of our
systems are Windows, so I just used the SMB option and listed the
machines I wanted to back up in the host file. I haven't tackled the
Linux machines yet, but that's only because I don't even know how to
share files on a Linux machine without Samba. Once I figure out the
whole rsync thing (I honestly don't even know what that is), I'll tackle
that aspect of BackupPC. But, if I only ever use it for my
Windows/Samba servers it's still an amazing product, and you can't beat
Charlie Brown's father was a barber.
