I was not specific enough.  Backing up to 120GB CDR or DVDR as the email I 
responded to suggested is non-trivial.

I back up to another hard drive myself.  I tried getting a hard drive in a 
usb2.0 enclosure to work to back up to, but it is constantly getting 
corrupted.  Maybe the RH7.3 kernel doesn't have good enough usb2.0 yet.  I'll 
probably upgrade at some point, but for now I'll move the hard drive 
internal.  Greater risk of both drived going bad from power surge, but that's 
a pretty small risk.
