It might be preferable to back up your workstations to a share on the server (direct to disk), then include that share in your backup. 

Most recent versions of Windows have a backup utility included, though not necessarily installed by default. In Windows 98, you neet to add it via Add and Remove programs, windows setup tab. XP Home is purported to have it included on the CD.

  Is it possible to share a tape drive using Samba. I have a tape drive that is attached to a Solaris box, that I would like to use to backup my entire environment; Solaris and Windows. If this is possible, how should I configure the smb.conf file.
