Default AMANDA and Ubuntu 12.04 Server

I'm setting up an Ubuntu 12.04 Server machine that I want to use for backups of various servers on my network (some running Ubuntu, some running Windows Server 2003/2008).

Setting up AMANDA has always been a problem for me. I've tried it in the past and never gotten it to work right. I decided I would try it again, though.

I used the HowTo Disk Based Backups With Amanda on Debian Etch as a guideline, installing amanda-server, xinetd, gawk, gnuplot, and readline-common on the server. I went through the next few steps (Amanda.conf did not exist, so I had to create it). Once I got down to 3.2, where I switch to the backup user and label the virtual tapes, I get blasted with error messages:

Code:
sh-4.2$ touch /etc/amanda/DailySet1/tapelist
sh-4.2$ for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6; do /usr/sbin/amlabel DailySet1 DailySet1-${i} slot {i}; done

sh-4.2$
I'm not really sure how to get this thing installed, and on some level I'm fairly certain that I will never in my lifetime be able to get AMANDA to work. If anyone can provide me with some guidance/tutorials/denewbification pertaining to AMANDA on Ubuntu -- specifically 12.04 Server -- it would be greatly appreciated. :P
