Follow up to my question for those also looking for backup solutions:

Thanks for the input, it was helpful and gave me some leads.

For What it's worth:
I've been testing Novastor's Novanet 8.5.  Pretty impressive.  It has a
nice GUI interface or a command line menu system, backups performed
well, recognized my library without any extra effort on my part.
Pricing isn't too bad either, especially compared to many of the other
options.  Granted I haven't donea really large backup yet, but the
initial impression is good.

I'm curious to what people are using for backing up their samba servers.
Here's are some specs to consider:
- 1TB (yes, that's terabyte) of data
- multiple servers backup to one tape drive connected to a server
(preferably a linux system)
- using an autoloader (in this case, an HP 1/9 LTO system)
- need to be able to backup daily changes and/or changes since last full
