 crontab for daily backups

I am running RedHat 6.2 on a 1.2G AMD Thunderbird PC. I have a SCSI DLT
tape drive that is successfully mounted on /dev/st0, which I want to set
up for daily incremental and weekly full backups.

I can only access the tape drive as root,  therefore setting up a user
crontab for daily backups results only in an error message (access

My question is therefore a) should I change the permissions on the tape
drive for user access and if so, how do I do that? or b) how do I set up
a crontab file as root to back up the whole system?

Thanks for any help,
