Span Backup Tapes

Maybe I'm not asking this question correctly because I can't seem to get the simple answer I'm looking for. I'll try again.

I am looking for a way to backup my servers to a 20/40 DDS4 tape drive. A full backup is about 50GB in size and done only once a month. For time sake, I do not want to compress the backup. I'm simply looking for a backup system that will span my 20GB tapes. I'm currently using DUMP/RESTORE through Webmin but for a full backup it never asks for another tape. I end up having to manually split the backup between the tapes which is a huge pain. I'm looking at ARKEIA LIGHT but it doesn't say anything about spanning tapes.

Someone please HELP!
