Default Enterprise Planing for backup and recovery

Hello friends,
I have a suggestion on backup plan and recovery. Can anyone with good knowledge on this are write the HOWTO for it?

Having the best server on earth without disaster recovery plan is useless.

Regards,
Mnzava

Thanx Falko and Hans,
I went through the rsync setup and so far it seems to be great.
I will continue to unfold its magics as i proceed.
Now is there any trick that i can use rsync to backup files from windows server using rsync installed on linux box?

Thanx and regards.
Mnzava

I think you can somehow do that with BackupPC, but maybe it's easier to do this using smb.
