  1. The simplest would be to setup linked servers, then through SQL Agent set up a job that executes “TargetServerName.master.dbo.sp_executesql” with a TSQL backup statement in the parameter (code it as if you were typing it in query analyzer on the target machine). If upgrading to SQL 2005 is an option, then there are some very flexible SMO options that you can probably leverage.
