Default Automatic Backups and Backup Process Help

Ok, so I am wondering is there any way to set up ISPConfig to backup every night automatically?

I am using Ubuntu Feisty and would just want to save the backup to a removable drive on the server.

Also, how easy is it to restore the backup? How does that work?

Would I be able to restore all my sites on another PC if I wanted to from the backup?

I know it's a lot of questions, but any help would be appreciated.

Or you could use rsync and hardlinks to get incremental snapshot-style backups...
