I went looking and couldn't find anything interesting, so I started
writing my own. rsync to a local "master" backup to reduce backup time,
use afio to create compressed archives, create and burn ISO images from
that. It's capable of spanning multiple CDs, but
incremental/differential backups are still on my TODO list.
It's quite crude and requires a lot of local disc space, but it works
for me so far.
It's just a small collection of shell scripts. Available on request if
you really want it, but like I said, it's fairly crude.
