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.

currently im doing the backups with a nightly bash script that dumps and rsyncs from all server to a backup machine and than writes to a tape.
I was looking at bacula and some other tools.
Which one would fit for thies size?
Most of the Backups are mysqldumps.
We have a superloader3 with a DLT-S4 Tape and we are som close to the
800GB that sometimes I get IO/Errors when writing one of our folder to tape.
You mention that most of your backups are MySQL dumps. Then you should look at Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL -- http://www.zmanda.com/backup-mysql.html. It is by far the best system available for managing MySQL backups. You can implement it on the backup server with the backups to disk on that server and then use Amanda to orchestrate everything to tape.
You can get opensource for both of those products. Just download the community edition. You can also get enterprise support, if that's what you need.
