[ILUG] OT: mirroring an external drive

I've got a Seagate 1TB Maxtor Central Axis external drive to do
network-based backups of a bunch of things at home. My fear, of course,
is having a single drive doing all of the work, with the single point of
failure and all that.
Have any of you toyed with using a cron job to do an rsync between two
disks (network-shared or not) ? My idea is to have two of them on the
network, with one regularly sync'd up with the contents of the other.
As ever, I want to avoid having to rely on the Windows/OSX software they
ship with it for handling backups of particular shared volumes on the drive.
Thanks for any suggestions,
