Backups. by Jamie “Shut up. I know things. You will listen to me. Do it anyway.” Zawinski » http://www.jwz.org/doc/backups.html

GNU/Linux

block by block or http://www.linux-backup.net/

rsync -avz -e ssh [user@host:path] [user@host:path]

or

using dvd-/+R on liquid.local to make mac/linux compatible backups to dvd

# mkisofs -r -apple -mac-name -o '/tmp/[image].img' /path/to/stuff 
# dvdrecord -dev=/dev/hdb -dao -overburn /tmp/[image].img

unison

seems to work well, is a syncroniser which propogates changes in both directions, using the same algorithm as rsync.
