If 10GB is your MINIMUM daily backup, you should also look at
throughput. 10GB can take a lo-o-o-o-ng time. Longer than you think.
For what it's worth, you can get a stack of 20GB IDE drives for cheaper
than the cost of most tapes, get one of them-there outboard FireWire
and/or USB2 boxes, and do a disk to disk backup.
