Backup on a CD Burner

Howdy All,
	I have a small network at home that I'm hoping to backup.  I have a
CD Burner and would prefer to use that than to purchase a tape drive.  People
keep mentioning Amanda, but when I downloaded it, the documentation mentioned
the need for a big tape.  Does Amanda only work with a tape drive?  Is there
something out there that people love and use to do multiple machine backups
onto a CD Burner.  I don't mind doing one machine a day for like a week.  I
just want to be able to make regular backups.  3 of the machines have 300MB
harddrives, and 2 have 10 Gig harddrives.  The 2 10 Gig drives are not close
to half full, but I'd like to assume they will be having data added on a
regular basis.  Any ideas are welcome.  Thanx.
