Do you mean "lan drive". One of those gadgets that you plug into a network cable and it has a big hard disk inside?

If so, look up smbtar, most lan drives have some sort of smb access.

To see the instructions, use...
man smbtar

smbtar -u <user> -p <password> -s <name of lan drive on network> -x <share folder on lan drive>

and it'll put the backup into a file called tar.out

two disk or one it shouldn't matter.

You can also use smbfs
like...
mkdir /mnt/xxx
mount -t smbfs -o username=<user>,password=<pass> //<server>/<share on server> /mnt/xxx

and copy it from /mnt/xxx to your local disk.
