I use Arkeia,

looks nice and does a great job.
Automated backups, multiple tapes/incremental/differentiantel the 
whole nine yards....
Also you can remote contral this baby from your Win95/98/2000/4.0 
workstation! And last but not least you can backup your windows 
clients aswell.

Also take a look a afbackup, does a great job but it's only console

I would choose for tape... Just a DD2 or DDS3 tape would be 
sufficient. I don't trust CD-R for backup.
