Trying to understand Veritas MS SQL Backups

I've switched my MS SQL 2000 backup strategy from Maintenance Plans in Enterprise Manager to using the Veritas BE 9.1 SQL Agent.  Like a lot of people, I run one full backup/week and several differential backups.  The full and differential backups are handled by different recurring backup "jobs".  

So my question is: how will the Veritas differential jobs know when the last full backup job was performed?  Is BE able to make MS SQL backup the transaction log records, etc.?  I'd really appreciate it if someone could provide me with a link to some specific documentation on this issue.

I've seen references to the "sql admin guide" but searching the Veritas site and Googling both failed to find it.  Unfortunately, my questions were not answered by:

Well it looks like BE does actually take control of SQL server and perform a SQL server-side full backup to the Quantum tapes.  Answered my own question.
