Backup specific folder in windows server 2003 to network storage device

I have a dell poweredge server running windows server 2003.  I have a yellow machine on the network for storage and backup.  I have scheduled a backup in the server 2003 backup utility.  I have it schedule to run every day at a certain time.  However, when the backup utility runs automatically, it goes right the the wizard screen where I have to manually choose the folder that needs to be backed up and work my way manually through the wizard.  How do I set up the backup utility to run without me having to manually go through the wizard, or do you have another recommendation to back up the information to the yellow machine.  Keeping in mind that the folder that is being backed up is a database file, if that makes a difference.

Hi,

 I would complete this by creating a batch job. Open a text editor such as notepad.exe.

Copy and paste this template batch into a new document:

ntbackup backup "dir to backup" /m normal /f "location and name of backupfile" /v:yes

i.e.

This should backup the temp directory to a file called temp.bkf on the mapped network G:\ drive.
ntbackup backup "c:\temo" /m normal /f "g:\temo..bkf" /v:yes

See ntbackup /? for more detailed info.
