I do not know how to use dos. My computing experience is primarly surfing, ms word, ms excel, email, faxing and research. i would like to backup the data on my computer ti dvd but, there is no free software that i can find that will allow me to do that.I am on a fixed income so i can not afford to buy software. I disecovered Amanda while researching Wiki Open Source. When I tried to install Amanda Backup a DOS window pops up and i can not figure out what to do next.
Can someone please help me.

OS-XP SP2
IPS- BELLSOUTH.NET

If you need any more info. please let me know.

Sincerly, Larry

Hi,

Amanda requires a Linux or a Solaris server. If you had multiple windows systems to backup, it would be good to consider Amanda as the backup server for those systems.

thanks
