 What software do you use to do backups with IDE Drives??

 I am going to buy a 3ware card and 4 IDE drives (160 GB) to do a RAID 5.

 What software (free or commercial) can i use????

 The architecture will be a server (with the raid) an several clients, mostly
Linux, but posibly solaris (and perhaps some windows :-(

 Thanks in advance...
