Can anyone recommend the best way to schedule automated disk-to-disk

if you want just a single backup, rsync'ing as root ought to suffice.
if you want backups going for some window(s) of time, then you might
want to check out something like rdiff-backup or bontmia or similar (there's
about a dozen rsync-with-hardlinks backup wrappers out there)
