We (Soan and I) have been using the "rhbackup..noarch.rpm" backup
program. BTW, rhbackup disappeared when RH-6.0 appeared.
We realized that it does not handle multi-volume. That was the reason
why we began experimenting with "dump-restore" in the first place.
I think dump does not do "compression".
What backup utility program do you use? Is BRU free to use in academic
institutions such as ours. "Taper" per se does not work. Maybe,
of "-b 64" is missing somewhere. I don't know. Our backup
1) should do "incremental", ("tar" cannot)
2) should do it under cron ("taper" cannot) for incremental.
3) should do multi-volume in the forground for full (rhbackup cannot)
4) it would be nice if it can do compression (dump cannot)
