The key would be, a tape a day? Just kidding. If you ca fit it all on
one tape, and it's not a long backup - why not do a full backup apposed
to some sort of incremental one.
A cron once a day should do the trick (man cron and man crontab) and I
would think using dump (man dump) would also do the archiving.
