What do you mean "automatic restore"?

You can use enterprise manager to setup a scheduled job with TSQL:

RESTORE database yourdatabasenamehere from disk='yourdrive\pathhere'

If the data files are in a different location, you need to specify the MOVE option also:

RESTORE DATABASE yourDatabaseNameHere
FROM DISK = 'x:\full\path\to\backup\backup.bak'
WITH MOVE 'logical_data_file_name' TO 'operating_system_data_file_name',
                   'logical_log_file_name' TO 'operating_system_log_file_name',
          RECOVERY
