Default Info for using a StorageTek L20 tape library on Suse 10.3

Hi all,

I have an IBM x226 that I will soon be installing Suse 10.3 64-bit on. It will be a full LAMP installation and a Samba file server that will house about 700GB or more of data.

I am looking for a tape backup solution and may be able to get my hands on a StorageTek L20 tape library with two LTO2 drives in it. I MIGHT be able to get this all for free, but then I have to worry about what I need to run it. My questions are...
  1. Where can I get drivers for this? Will I need drivers for the library, the drives, or both?
  2. Is there any free software (Amanda, perhaps?) that can effectively be used to create backups on a weekly and monthly basis? Is Amanda robust enough?
  3. If nothing free, what can I use?
  4. I would also like to backup a few MySQL databases which will eventually be running. Never done this before. Can anyone point me in an informative direction regarding this?
Many thanks, folks!

Chris

Yes, I think you should use Amanda: http://www.howtoforge.com/disk_based...da_debian_etch
