Question Backup Solution for whole network


I would like to sneak a Linux machine into a a company by using it as a backup server. They need a new backup solution and have an older server that could be reconfigured. I can put a 4mm dat tape drive on it and it should be good to go hardware wise.

The software needs to be:
1. Hosted on the Linux computer with the tape drive
2. Able to backup the Windows 2000 server
3. Preferably have an interface (Web ?) that the windows admin will not be afraid of.
4. Individual files can be restored.

Questions?
What happens to open files on windows?
Commercial is OK but not required.

What sugestions do you have?

BRU does not support Windows long file names?

NovaNet is $995.00 for the version to do both Windows and Linux even if it is only one of each.

LoneTar is promising but is about $500 which is a little rich.
I think a $200 or less solution is possible but have not been able to find/make it yet.
