I have not looked into this for a few years, but at the time, Veritas 
provided a free license for you to download/use a copy of their Unix 
backup agent to run on Linux.  Go to their support site.  If you can find 
a Linux agent, go ahead and use that.  If not, I believe I used their 
generic Unix agent.  This will allow you to backup your Linux server to a 
Backup Exec server directly.
