I'm actually looking to start up a Linux server which
Windows systems can back up to securely.  I'm looking
at clients who have information which needs to remain
secure, so preferably a client/server system which
will let Windows system sftp into my Linux server
through an automated process.  I'm open to commercial
software, but not very open to backing up to someone
else's servers;  I'm very anal retentive in my
security <G>
