Actually, there are lot's of words.

If you're only doing one part of one system to disk rather than tape, then Amanda or Bacula would be overkill. Something like BackupPC or rsync sounds more appropriate. But, since you didn't mention much about your system, deciding exactly what to recommend is a bit of a problem.
