I have two customers doing something similar. They each have a small 
MS-ADO program (one written in Delphi, one VB) which dumps the 
database(s) out completely as SQL text, which then gets backed up.

I know that there are OS-portable SyBase-oriented utilities around which 
can do the same from *n[iu]x, because I've done this by hand a while 
ago (IIRC, from a Digital Unix box). These would allow "one" to manage 
"one's" entire backup from the Samba box.
