What software do you suggest for doing this? That is what is foremost on my mind at this stage.

Hi Stan,

I've had good luck with rdiff-backup. It's in the main SuSE repository
and is easy to install. I've used it both for disk-to-disk backups
on the same machine and for remote-server pulls using ssh. I've even
used it for backing up Windows boxes using smbfs to mount their
exported "folders", then rdiff-backup to a local hard disk. Runs
fine from cron.
