Automatic network backup using Linux

Make your system back itself up.
To protect our group from data loss, I proposed an automatic, network-based backup system for our irreplaceable data. The costs were negligible (we had a 486/66 computer that was not in use and a 3GB hard disk that cost us little more than one hundred dollars). I went through several versions of this system over the past two years, starting with a Windows 95-based system and ending up with a fast, powerful Linux-based system. The current version is easy to implement, inexpensive, powerful and reliable. Assuming you have a networked Linux machine ready, you should be able to use this article to set up your own automatic backup system in a short time.
