    Bacula quick start guide for server setup?

    Is there a concise, quick setup guide for Bacula on Ubuntu?

    Googling sent me to this http://www.bacula.org/manuals/en/install/install
    While this is great and all, trying to walk through the "quick start" of setting Bacula and I just seem to wander in circles following links that take me back to the same place...

    I'm setting it up on a headless (thus no GUI) server with a SCSI attached Dell LT02 autochanger.

    I'm thinking this isn't really that hard, but having never touched the software some - even the vaugest - hints at the correct direction would sure help.

    the Official documentation doesn't work?
    I'd retrace the steps...Is it installed?

    It's installed - via apt-get at the command line.
    bacula-console just hangs.

    I have a Dell PV122T changer with an LTO2 drive.
    Still haven't found a configuration for bacula-sd.conf that appears to do anything but cause bacula-console to get even weirder.


    All I need is something to copy data onto to LTO2 tapes that can span large files across multipl volumes.
    This really doesn't have to be the rocket science torture that it's turning into.
