RE: Backing up over network



I'm in the process of trying to build a total NAB system
around Fedora FC1 and Bacula (http://bacula.org)  I'm 
still WAY early in the process, but it sounds a heck of
a lot more powerful than Amanda (which is what I was going
to use until I found Bacula).  It might be just up your
alley if you want to do REAL backups; it's basically
a GPL Veritas wannabe, from what I've seen so far.  I'm
using a DLT III XT drive (yeah, I know, old, but the price 
was REALLY right...) vice your DDS3 (which is what I 
originally was going to get...) but DDS3 is supported,
supposedly.

Anyone else out there playing with Bacula?
