[uug] Backing up a windows machine to a linux fileserver

I am wondering if anyone knows of any good, easy-to-use utilities for
windows for backing data up to a linux fileserver over a network.
So here's the situation: I need an easy-to-use backup solution for my
mother, who is using windows XP. I plan to set up a linux fileserver
with two cheap 80gig hard drives set up in a mirror via software
RAID. I'm looking for an easy-to-use windows frontend that will allow
her to easily backup files to the linux box.
The other option is to just use samba to provide diskspace on the
server and mount that via samba as a network drive and just have her
store her stuff directly on the linux box. She's not going to need a
whole lot of speed- we're just talking word docs and photos, etc.
Anybody have any ideas?
