choice is depending on your needs.
but for smaba, I think i will have to face two problems,
1- does linux (RHEL-5) supports NTFS file system? by default no.
2- can we make it possible to run on cron? because i need the schedule backup.
on ftp, its good to copy the files one time but how we can use it with cron?
Can we think about scp or rsync? any idea? the way which support NTFS and ext3 file system ???
