Hey Guys,

I have a dedicated web server that I need to backup (entirely).
Unfortunately there's not enough room for me to make a tar archive on
the machine, and there's no tape drive either in the machine or at that
facility that we can efficiently use.  We get charged for bandwidth
usage, so I would like to compress the backup before it comes over the

Also, this is a one time deal, so I can't go spending massive amounts of
cash on some commercial backup software.

Any Suggestions?
