We have been doing tape backups of our server at work for about 4 years. Now one of the backup tapes is stuck in the drive and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it out again! [more inside]

Network backup question: I need to backup 6 PCs using an 8 tape autoloader (Dell LTO2 T122) and ntbackup. Currently, the simple setup scheduled backups are quite flakey. [more inside]

I've taken the role as a graphic designer at a small company, and I also wear the IT hat sometimes. That being said, I'm more of a Mac Guru than (blech) XP. BUT, we have a small file server (40 GB, half full) of data we would like to backup nightly.
#1: What's a good tape drive (or other media) for that much data, with room to grow, of course.
#2: What software?
#3: What's a "typical" backup schedule. I'd prefer just to do incrementals, but how often to rotate tapes/etc...?
