Yeah I wasn't sure what to do. It is hard to supress the M-q reflex

Thats quite unfortunate but this chapter won't help you much. Debian
include two powerful backup systems: Amanda and Bacula which could
replace EMC NetWorker and several light weight systems for the casual
user that don't require a big configuration overhead like rsnapshot
The guide only mention those but don't even what they do (ok it
mentions that they do backups).
If I was a new system administrator and I was to read the guide as it
is today, I would understand that Debian recommend that I buy EMC
Is there a good manual to the debian-doc ddt? I don't know which tag
to use where.
