Legato works.  It basically does the job and the people who use it don't seem 
to report any problems with it.

I don't know of any reason why Legato would be any better than other similar 

Amanda sounds promising (everyone is recommending it).  I've asked a colleague 
who's into backups (and who has been using Legato for years) to investigate 
Amanda and write a report comparing them.

We should probably get the Debian web page changed.  A commercial program has 
to be a LOT better than DFSG free programs to deserve a mention on our web 
pages IMHO.
