Um, not really.  I've done a bit of reading on both after someone on this 
list recommended Bacula ('till then I didn't even know it existed) and it 
looks a bit more appealing to my tastes.  Sorry I can't quantify it better 
than that.  I had a bit of a play with Bacula at work for 10 minutes or so 
a couple of weeks ago and it looked the goods.

Got my chio nastyness fixed too.  It appears my tape library (TLS-4210) has 
spots for 2 tape drives, but only one drive installed in the *second* drive 
position.  I had to put something else on the SCSI bus and tell the changer 
to use it as drive1, I've just got to remember not to tell the changer to 
put a tape in it!

Time to compile Bacula, wish me luck.
