      I was the original author of:

      http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/BackupYourLinuxBox

      which basically gave my experience of trying a simple back up. I've not
      really tried and large packages, I was trying to keep it simple. I don't
      think I tried rsync and nfs together, rather I set up an rsync server. There
      was problems with nfs and tar due to the 2G limit (which may be gone) but I
      suspect that is less or no issue with rsync + nfs. I did not try rsync +
      nfs. I suspect you would need to slit the backup into several chunks to
      avoid rsync running out or memory.
