I think I will have a go at the straight bash / tar / gzip method 
I've got to prove to these guys that it can be done at low (or no :/ ) cost
via the Linux route!!!

Thanks John for the scripting hints... (much appreciated!).

Domonic was asking about backup software,

If you want something all singing all dancing Arkeia is your friend!  See

Overwise, yes it is feasible to use a Samba, tar, gzip / bzip2 and the
majority of SCSI based tape drives to do what you want - if you're going to
set this up manually a little bit of bash scripting can make you life a lot
simpler (you could use Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP etc, but bash will do the
trick here).
