If you are running version 8, you may want to look into the WAL archiving:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/backup-online.html

That would form the basis of your incremental backup strategy. I haven't had the joy of using them myself however, and do not know of any tools to make it more convenient, and a quick breeze through pgfoundry didn't find much either.

Thanks Naomi. 

Is there anybody using this for large DB's? Anything larger than a
couple hundred GB, it would be impractical to make full backups
everyday. Anyone out there using this for large DB's, if so I'd love to
hear how they are dealing with backups.

Joe,
