I backup our RedHat linux server over our network to tape every night
via Retrospect Server 6.5. While it does not offer decent support for
other linux flavors, you can try to install the client rpm using alien
or something like that. I've never gotten it to work on Debian, but I am
a mere grasshopper at Linux.
