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.

We (.edu) have a backup server running RH7.3 with 4 Seagate Model STT8000N drives hanging on a Adaptec AIC7XXX card using Travan 8GB Imagion tapes.
I have searched and searched for (free) backup software that can span our 4 drives. I presently use Arkeia on our mail server, but KNOX has about as much drive/tape support as my underware. Taper 6.9b-3 is nice when spanning with one drive, but I don't know if/how to use 4 drives.
Tar and cipo just won't cut it. I want to keep my dir tree on the same tape or in the same archive to speed/ease recovery in the unfortunate case when it's needed. Right now, /home needs 2 tapes and other mounts are comming close.
BRU is perfect, but for the price I would rather do a PO for a couple 160GB IDE HD's and backup to them...yes, I/we are really cheap...tight budget at this univ.
So, anyone know of a backup solution? I'd really appreciate any pointers.
WindersXP is great, if M$ hadn't released it I'd never started using Linux.
I tried it and went back to Arkeia because it was so much easier to use. Arkeia supports just about every drive and tape. I don't know why you're having problems with it. You probably just need to pick a compatable tape drive.
I have a DLT by HP which isn't listed but is the same as Quantum dlt2000 which is the same as Compaq, etc, etc.
It works like a gem.
I was just doing a search for Arkeia on the web and found that their web site is either down or no longer available. On freshmeat.net, their site is listed as http://www.arkeia.com/. Do they have a different site or have they gone the way of the dinosaur?
