Sorry,
     Basically, we are having one laptop set up with a local copy of the website. This will be traveling around to trade shows, collecting registration info. Name, Email, Address, PhoneNumber etc....... We will also have as many as 5 PDAs going around collecting just email addresses. All of this for a contest entry. We need to DTS the info from the PDA to the Laptop and then from the Laptop to the main server.

If you want to know about the DTS Replication or custom replication:
http://www.winnetmag.com/SQLServer/Article/ArticleID/8759/ 

or use replication as arbert has suggested:
1) Data is entered/updated at a remote site (PDA) and needs to be replicated to the main DB(Ford DB), but not to any of the other remote DBs.
-- Merge replication --> (one-way, yes you can replicate from PDA -> laptop -> Ford HQ, this is just a simplified version as given above).  You would use the laptop (or multiple laptops) as distributors of the information back to Ford HQ (Central subscriber model).

A quick look at this article the custom replication may need to transfer all the indexes to a central server to resolve the differences(based on this article), with merge replication resulting in high network i/o.
The log reader agent will handle this within the merge replication and allow for down-time errors and just resolve the changes that are within the transaction logs of each remote machine.

There are some good replication resources to be found here:
