Setup a Samba server on the FreeBSD box, then use the native 
windows backup tools to backup to the Samba share. Archive 
backups on the FreeBSD/Samba machine to tape/CDRW etc... with 
tar. If file compression is enabled in the windows backup 
utility then avoid using compression in your tar command as 
you will waste a lot of CPU power for very little compression.
