Steam isn't a company or a body, it's an application. What do you mean you cannot backup your games?

cd to the directory and tar cvf backup.tar game_folder

You can't? Nice errormessage!
You can easy copy your SteamApps folder to anywhere, then you have your backup.

What is the format or extension of the backups?

You can restore the backups using steam itself. Even in Windows this is usually the best way. Those .exe files just call Steam anyway.

Look under 'Restore' in the steam menu and direct it to your backup files.

yeah the best solution ever
why don't you recommend him to just right click on folder and create archive since there is such a tool in most of the distros?
