Open file backup - volume shadow


Hi,
Can anyone advise me.

There are 12 computers running XP pro in my office. One PC is used as a file server, differnt access is granted to each user.I Can backup open file using Xp backup software. Xp is normally limited to 10 concurrent connection on shared folder.
Now I'm willing to install linux to as a server os because W3k is too expensive and do file sharing.
Wanted to know which Linux distro has a good backup software that supports Normal, differential, incremental, scheduling and volume shadow so that I can backup open files and if possible which has a GUI .
My monthly backup is 16 GIG.

Regards
Mevin

The major distors are all pretty similar (at least under the hood ie at the cmd line).
For a Linux newbie, typical recommendations are Mandriva, Suse, Fedora. K/Ubuntu are more desktop oriented, but have the same 'engine' underneath.
There are various backup tools avail if you search here (or google).
Amanda (http://sourceforge.net/projects/amanda/) is extremely capable, runs server on Unix style systems, can backup Unix/Mac/MS.
