I highly recommend AMANDA.  It works great as a network backup utility, and 
with Samba installed on the system, can use smbclient/smbtar to perform 
backups of NT and Windows based systems.  It is designed to be a network 
backup system for your entire enterprise, and is incredibly scalable.  It can 
back up as little or as much as you want, and it does the backup scheduling 
for you (i.e. no more figuring out which day you should do a level 0 or one of 
the 9  incrememtal levels :)

Hope that helps!
