Some Information on Amanda

Hi list
I need to  set up a back-up serverserver  for our network and  need  recommendation for a good backup software to enable me do that. However my back up is going to be done using a 2gig jaz drive attached to the backup server.
Could you guys help me in choosing a backup server that will allow me use a jaz drive?
Secondly while seaching for information on on backup server I took a look at Amanda and got the following description.
AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup server to back up multiple hosts to a single large capacity tape drive.
My question is will this software allow me to make backups to a jaz drive or must I use only a tape drive.
