For complete and incremental backups, if you don't want to spend any money, use fbackup and frecover. The man pages explain it quite well. Basically you give fbackup an option of -0 for a complete backup and -1 through -9 for incremental backups. -1 will then backup everything since the last full backup, -2 since the last -1 backup and so on. Once you go back to a higher number like 0, the increments are reset back to that number. When you restore something, you will need to first restore your incremental tapes in proper order and finally the last full backup.
