I use Super Duper which is an easy to use system that will also let
you script back-ups from one external hard drive to another (I don't
have Leopard so I don't know if Time Machine will do this or not).
Very simple, works great, and the company has wonderful customer
service: http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html
