Hello all:

I recently received an unusual request. We have a Prof who wants a Linux
box with a backup scheme. The only thing is that he wants everything
backed up on hard disc. This is simple enought to do by putting a
tar/bzip2 script in cron, but I was wondering if there are sounder
strategies. Any suggestions?
