If you have the GPMC installed its easy (you can download and install it free from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0a6d4c24-8cbd-4b35-9272-dd3cbfc81887&displaylang=en)

Select the Group Policy Objects container and select BACKUP ALL or select an indiviual GPO and select backup.
