I am a windows tech and have no experience with Linux. I have a client with a database server - RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 on it. I just purchased an external usb hard drive. Can anyone provide step-by-step instructions on how to use this HD to back up files in this box. I need.to format and mount the HD first. I don't know if the server has any current backup software. (Had asked this question but had to leave..I am now in front of server). Thx for help...
