How should I start selecting a backup system?

I have small law office with two Windows 2000 and a network of 17 personal computer workstations, primarily used for legal document preparation using WordPerfect, but including a professional billing application that runs on one of the servers. The office currently has no backup of any sort in place, except for the files that individuals save on floppy disks on their own PCs. I've been retained to recommend and implement a backup system for them. What do you recommend?
You should install a tape backup device on one of your main servers, then select a backup program, such as Veritas Backup or Sunbelt Software's Ultrabac. Talk with your hardware vendor about selecting a device right for your needs (primarily space and speed).
