tape backup regiment

I would like to set up a "fail-safe" backup system for a linux box that
i am putting together for a client of mine.  Ideally the client will
just have to make sure there is a new tape in there every other day and
a cron will take care of backing up the entire 2G drive to tape sometime
when everyone else is sleeping.

In the event of a drive crash I would like to have some kind of a boot
disk handy such that once the drive is replaced they can run a script to
fdisk/format/restore from tape.  Has anyone heard of or done something
like this?  how?

any suggestions on tape hardware?
