Mondo Backup Script

Hello, I am running Suse 9.3 pro and have mondo rescue installed and working fine. I can manually back up with my HP tape drive (/dev/st0).

Now what im trying to do is find some resources and help to make a script to automatically backup everynight to /dev/st0.
Most the scipts i have found are to backup to your hard drive and or to a CD . I also want to exclude /shared from the backup.

Can anyone give me a link of some help to get me started.
