Network Unix backup to tape drive

does anyone know how I can make an automatic backup of files to a tape drive under UNIX. I have so many commands, I don't know which goes where. I have commands for the task scheduler, Cron and other unix commands. Please help. Very Urgent. Thanks

Can you give as many details as possible?

What kind of Unix? Do you want a full backup? Are you only archiving a few files?
