Actually BackupPC does run on CentOS without any problem.
I use BackupPC hosted on a CentOS 5.2 server to backup some Windows

On the other hand the Unix machines, including the CentOS machines,
while they could be served by a BackupPC server as well, I do those
backups using Amanda, mostly because that is what I used for more
than 8 years now, and because we need tapes as well.

Amanda never left me in the cold, even after terrible hard disk
crashes or operator mistakes.
