Very best backup software for a Mac OS X Server v. 10.5.8 with a Dual 2.3 GHz PowerPC G5 processor

I'm looking for the very best backup software for a Mac OS X Server v. 10.5.8 with a Dual 2.3 GHz PowerPC G5 processor. I have included a screenshot of the Mac Server's specs.

This backup software needs to be able to backup the Mac OS X v. 10.5.8 server as well as 3 Mac OS X 10.4 workstations. None of these workstations have the newer Intel processors or chipsets.

What sort of Macintosh backup software is available that can do this?

I forgot to put this in my original question.

I am already running Retrospect v. 8 backup on this server.

Before that I ran Retrospect v. 6 backup on this server.

I have had nothing but problems with the Retrospect backup software!

I have already looked into upgrading to the Retrospect v. 9 software, but have found that this version requires an Intel processor.

That is why I am looking for a different type of backup software so that I can move away from Retrospect.

Please let me know what other types of Mac backup software are available.

I'm interested in both a commercial version or an open source version.

The user data is centrally managed and needs to be copied to a USB hard drive connected to the Mac server.

Are there any other backup programs available?

Other than what? What resources are available to? External drives, tapes.
Another system that will act as the backup sever?

Similarly, the question is too vague to answer usefully unless you address the issue I raised above: How you back up the server, and what you need to back up depends significantly on what services the server is running.
