[Dirvish] dirvish - solaris / linux

I have a Solaris 10 box that follows a vendor mandated routine of tape backups that are cumbersome. 

I currently run Dirvish on linux to back up my other linux servers.  Note however that I am primarily the desktop guy and have inherited the sys admin's job kind of by default. 

Is there anything I particularly need to be aware of when backing up solaris to a linux box? 

What about versions of rsync?  

Installing dirvish on solaris? 

Looking for someone to just kind of point me in the right direction and maybe do a little coaching. 

I can find my way around linux okay, but I have no real training or familiarity with Solaris.
