Here are two tutorials for setting up Amanda, one for Debian which will cover other apt-based systems as well, one for CentOS which should work for other yum/rpm-based systems or could be easily adapted:

http://www.howtoforge.com/disk_based_backups_amanda_debian_etch

For hourly backups, change the crontab entry in the first howto from:

45 0 * * 2-6    /usr/sbin/amdump intra

to:

0 * * * *        /usr/sbin/amdump intra
