Linux Incremntal backups.

I have a linux server I am trying to backup. I want to do Full and incremental backups. I understand that the archive bit isn't understood by Linux. From what I have gathered you need to go off a modified date mode to get incrementals to function. Can anyone explain to me how to get this working. I am looking for doc and can't really find anything.
