Better would be to run Amanda (or something similar) clients on each
desktop machine, and back up each user's /home each night onto a 
central server's tape drive.

After seeing all the viruses, trojan horses, worms and Reply
mails from stupidly-configured anti-virus software that's been
hurled upon the internet for the last 3 years, and the
time/money that is spent protecting against said viruses, trojan
horses & worms, I can only conclude that Microsoft is dangerous
to the internet and American commerce, and it's software should
be banned.
