Unix Distro to act as server and backup clients over the network


Hey, Im looking for the ideal distro/programs to create a backup server for a family member's business network. Is there any specialized for over the network automatic scheduled backups from windows(XP & 2003) machines to the unix server? Im not as well versed in unix machines as windows but I have started using slackware for about 6 months now as my first distro. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. I would probably test run the server on my own personal test network to check for any unforseen problems. thanks!
