Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have installed a linux fileserver and details are...
OS : Redhat Linux 7.3
Tape Drive : 4 mm 20/40GB DAT (internal)
Tape Drive : Compaq StorageWorks 8/16 Cartridge AutoLoader
My user data is very critical, I want to depend on the backups in case of disasters.
My requirement is to take full backup once in a week i.e. Sunday and incremental backups from Mon-Sat. Apart from the users data, I want to take OS backup and this should be useful in case, if my linux corruption. I am providing df -k output for reference.
Take a look at the 'dump' command. Also do a search on this site. There are a lot of threads with different peoples opinions on how to backup.(Certainly don't listen to just me...see what others have to say)
