A. Backups are a tough question no matter the platform. You have to evaluate how much changes each day, how much total storage is needed, how much user interaction you want, how fast a recovery you need, cost, and many other factors.

If you have .Mac service the Backup application that comes with it is great and can do online, CD/DVD and external drive backups.

iBackup (free) is an excellent backup program suitable for backing up to external hard drives.

Apple’s Leopard (10.5  – coming in the spring) has an integrated backup called Time Machine, which is an automated backup to external hard drive. It has without a doubt the most intuitive interface I’ve ever seen and generally a seemingly good backup strategy.

Lastly Mirra is a backup appliance which can automatically backup your files on multiple machines over the network. It can also sync files between machines.
