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
