Veritas MS SQL Server Agent Install Trouble

All servers: W2K SP4
BE 9.1

There are 2 servers involved here: The BE server and an MS SQL 2000 server.  These are 2 different machines.

I'm trying to install the SQL Server Agent using the following instructions
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/235680.htm

Unfortunately, the UI in the HOWTO page is not the same as the 9.1 UI so it's hard to follow it step-for-step.  The question is: Am I supposed to be performing that software installation while logged into the BE server OR the SQL server??  It's a really basic question but it's so not clear from the instructions there.

You do it all on the backup server, the agent gets put on the backup server, the SQL stuff gets put on the backup server (so the SQL management DLLs are available to it.) The remote windows agent gets put on the SQL server so the system state can be backed up but you install it from the backup server and push it out from there to the SQL box. You don't put either the SQL or Veritas CD into the SQL server.

Beware of nasty automatic reboots on the remote machine, I think they've stopped that happening now but there's still an option to reboot it after the remote NT/2000 agent install.

http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/240200.htm is the old install GUI but it's applicable to 9.1 except for the difference in looks.
