AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Autoamatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup
system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup
server to back up multiple hosts to a single large capacity tape drive.
AMANDA uses native dump and/or GNU tar facilities and can back up a large
number of workstations running multiple versions of Unix. Recent versions
can also use SAMBA to back up Microsoft Windows hosts.
You will need to have a special user and group created for AMANDA to use;
this defaults to user and group of "amanda" but you can specify whatever
group you wish - see the build script for more information.
After installing, see the /usr/doc/amanda-2.6.1p1/README.SLACKWARE for more
information on how to modify inetd.conf to start the the Amanda daemons
automatically at boot.
