Use NFS and aither tar, cpio, dd, pax, or whatnot.

NFS a remove mount from the destination computer. Then use tar, cpio, or whatever to copy that data from one directory to the NFS directory. Unmount the NFS drive when you're done.

We use this to backup our webservers. Much easier and more convenient than using tape or whatnot.
