I am positive that others on this list will be able to assist you further with this question. 

In the mean time you may want to refer to a recently started thread relating to backups on the rsync mailing list : <http://www.mail-archive.com/rsync@lists.samba.org/msg25924.html>

The summary of my reply to this thread was that you may want to have a look at LBackup.

I hope this helps.
