1) Decide what backup software you want to use. Write a script to handle the backup.

2) man cron or man crontab. Use cron the schedule the backup. attaching the man page.

Re: Help still needed

See if you tape drive is really there.

"cat /proc/scsi/scsi" or "cdrecord -scanbus". This should show you if your tape drive is configured proeprly.
Never preceed any demonstration with anything more predictive than "watch this"

Guess scheduling the cron job is the best way so that no intervention us required.
