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.

thanks for those links people. I have had a look at them and they all seem a bit complex. tar and s tar seem to backup files while I want to back up whole directories in an incremental manner. That is, only backup directories and the files in them that have been changed.
The backup utility in XP seems fairly straight forward to use, just tick the directories to backup and the destination and schedule the task. Something in DSL would be nice.
My company needs a backup tool to be able to manage the data of some other companies remotely. The data of the other companies should be stored at our server and the backup process should be done dayly or weekly and if possible automatically (but i think the problem is not the automation here). I have to manage project data and I also have to manage entire databases (Oracle, MySQL and maybe PostgreSQL). Does anyone know about such a backup utility?
That would be great if it has a GUI, but that's not really necessery.
