Amanda can use multiple tapes.  It just can't split a backup of a single
filesystem or directory across them.  If you can break things up in
chunks so the biggest full run will fit on a single tape it
will work. 

http://www.bacula.org/ looks interesting, but I haven't used it.  I've
pretty much given up on tapes and use backuppc
http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/ to back up to online disks now.
