Backup to network volume without using disk images?


I currenly use a concoction of rsync scripts to backup all of the house's computers and external harddrives to a single big-ass RAID box that has a single partition. Now, I'd like to use SuperDuper for scheduled incremental backups ("Smart Update") for the backups that are already there, because I *don't* feel like spending an entire weekend copying over all that data over network again. Is it possible to have SuperDuper just treat a specific folder on my network volume as a backup target volume? No disk images or anything like that, just copy the files with all my precious metadata intact.

I hope you can help me, because I can't find another good backup app for Mac, and I'm seriously tired of my rsync scripts. (FYI: Synk sucks big time!)

(My current file structure on my backup disk looks like this:
23:23:16 argon:~ nevyn$ cd /Volumes/Capitol/
23:23:20 argon:/Volumes/Capitol nevyn$ ls
Desktop DB       daemons/         manual/
Desktop DF       installer_files/ rsync/
23:23:21 argon:/Volumes/Capitol nevyn$ ls rsync 
Argon/   Kizei/   Mist/    Rah/     SHADOW/  WIZEI/   Xithaen/
23:23:36 argon:/Volumes/Capitol nevyn$ ls rsync/Kizei 
Applications/ Library/      bin/          opt/          usr/
Apps/         Network/      botlib.log    private/      var@
