I use an extra machine as a backup pc, and since it does nothing else, it can be a rather cheap one. Therefore, read-only mounted shares of any kind (nfs preferred, but samba is ok, too) are sufficient, and no silly user can sweep anything he doesn't own.
To avoid problems with 2 GB limit, I use RAR, which is a good program under linux as well as under windows...
