Thanks, for all the great info. You are right about using a DVD. I am going
to do both an external hard drive and DVD for storing in my safe deposit
box. (I never want to encode 300 LP's again)
At this point I am moving toward Retrospect.
It's a lot more involved but it will cover my needs no mater what I do.
Thanks again for all the info. This forum is a great source of info.

rsnapshot is excellent, and it is what I use for doing my weekly backup
from my primary HD to my backup HD in my server. It's also superb for
doing backups over the network.

However, I think you will find that it isn't the solution you are
looking for if you want to burn DVD backups (as was stated at the
beginning of this thread). Personally, I think Linux's biggest shortfall
is in good tools for burning discs. I still jump over to windows for
doing that...
